Critic Reviews of "Tokyo Tribe"L.A. WeeklyOctober 26, 2015
The nearly two-hour run time starts to feel like a concert where the hype men won't get off the stage.New York Magazine/VultureOctober 25, 2015
There's a strange power to Sion's filmmaking that goes beyond the midnight-movie oddness of the plot. He likes the silly and the strange, but he has the style of a Spielberg; he can work wonders with a camera and make the dumbest ideas work.Los Angeles TimesOctober 23, 2015
It's as if the American hip-hop culture has been fully lost in Japanese translation and skewed as something cartoonish.RogerEbert.comOctober 23, 2015
It's an infectiously over-the-top and unquestionably idiosyncratic mess, but it only holds together for as long as you're impressed by its commitment to an admittedly novel premise.New York TimesOctober 22, 2015
The cumulative effect ... is numbing.Hollywood ReporterOctober 16, 2015
The novelty factor fades midway through, and not even the bizarre sight of a (computer-generated) tank rolling down the streets and bombing buildings could really sustain or amplify the flagging energy of it all.The Film StageMarch 12, 2016
What makes Tokyo Tribe ultimately unique, if still problematic in its sheer amount of chaos, are the underlying politics.SF WeeklyNovember 11, 2015
One of the joys of Japanese cinema is how it not only wholeheartedly embraces genres, but also happily mixes them up.Movie MezzanineOctober 30, 2015
Even to call it a perverted ultra-violent dystopian Japanese gang war hip-hop musical, while covering all the bases, would miss what makes the film so indelible.Aisle SeatOctober 22, 2015
The novelty wears out long before Tokyo Tribe is over. That's because there's nothing really happening here except for the execution of the novelty.Paste MagazineOctober 22, 2015
Masquerading as a hip-hop martial arts musical, Tokyo Tribe is mostly just a puerile male fantasy come to hypercolor life.The Young FolksOctober 07, 2015
...Tokyo Tribe plays as a gleeful, explosive phantasm of color and energy.
