Must See Madness – Riki-Oh: The Story of Ricky

Maybe it’s just me (maybe it isn’t), but I love bad movies. Not just “That story sucked!”, but every aspect – score, acting, plot, effects, sound, lighting…everything! They’re like little bouquets of shit just for me.  The Story of Ricky is one such movie. Based on a pretty badass manga, this movie does everything in its power to turn it into a comedic, ultra-gore filled romp the likes you’d be hard pressed to find again. The story takes place in your typical prison…you know the kind, the Warden is crooked, a gang of inmates run things in the prison, and super power endowed inmates. Think “Lock Up” with Stallone only more Asian and with the addition of super powers and ultra-gore. Sentenced to 10yrs for killing the evil bastard who kinda/sorta scared his girlfriend to the point she was compelled to leap from the roof a building, Ricky just wants to be left alone and do his time.Â

Maybe it's just me (maybe it isn't), but I love bad movies. Not just "That story sucked!", but every aspect – score, acting, plot, effects, sound, lighting…everything!

An opium growing prison cartel known as "The Gang of Four" (all whom could just walk out of the damn prison) don't like Ricky very much…and so the story begins. Within minutes of arriving to the prison of the damned, Ricky stands to fight the corruption within. This is the part where I stop telling you about this movie and begin my campaign of recommendation. Reason being, I could easily spoil any fun to be had by simply summarizing the events of the film. This is something that needs to be watched to fully understand its awful greatness.
