Henry Spencer's rating of the film Tetsuo: The Bullet Man

Suffers severly from Squandered-Potential-Syndrome. I think the actors could have done better as they seemed quite charismatic to me, but I guess that's what you get when you let a japanese person write english dialogues. Way too fucking much shaky cam, especially in the action sequences. It also tries desperately to jam a story down our throats, like Tetsuo II. In my opinion the first part is still the best.
