A meteor has hit Tokyo Bay, turning the dead into mindless but ultraviolent zombies. The military soon takes charge of the situation, but Colonel Fujioka (Kenji Otsuki) actually wants to use the situation for his own advantage, he figures he will use the bio amphetamine that brings the zombies back to life to create an army of supersoldiers. Heck, he even takes some of the bio amphetamine himself to make himself a superman, and he has a quartet of personal guards, his "monsters", high on the stuff. And while it was his mission to get all survivors out of the bay area, he prefers to have his men shoot the survivors and harvest them for supersoldier material.

However, there is another branch of the military that takes saving survivors more seriously, and they send in Keiko (Cutey Suzuki), a girl with supreme fighting skills in a battle suit, in to take care of the situation. What follows are many fights in which Keiko faces zombies, the Colonel's soldiers (of both the super and the un-super variety) and his monsters, and eventually, she hooks up with the Battle Kids, a group of carefree gunrunners, who find themselves forced to help her in her cause, but who die all but one.

Of course, ultimately Keiko has to face a supercharged Colonel Fujioka, which leads to a long and hard battle, but Keiko emerges victorious ...

 

A sexy girl in a battlesuit fighting zombies? That sounds good, looks good ... and is a bit of a disappointment, actually. Basically, the film was shot on too low a budget to actually work, and that is mirrored in the many action sequences that could have done with a bit of polish, and the rather low zombie and military headcount. Furthermore, the film seriously lacks the irony a movie of that kind badly needs, and/or characters one can actually care for.

What remains are isolated cool scenes and some very cool costumes, but that's not enough to result in a good film, now is it?
