Mackenzie is a bit paranoid about his girlfriends.

such has been his bad luck: but now he's sure he‘s dating Miss X. a female serial killer who chops her hubbies.

I Tetsuo 2: The Bodyhammer ( l 8) (Shinya Tsukamoto. Japan. 1992) Tomoroh Taguchi. Nobu Kanaoka. Shinya Tsukamoto. 83 mins. More sophisticated than its eye-opening predecessor. 'l‘sukamoto's latest post-modern body horror does have a plot something to do with the murder of a child and the father‘s subsequent mutations through rage.

death of her composer husband and child in a car

crash. but she cannot escape from the fragments of his unfinished composition. in which she played a major part. An expressive and symbolic film that is also emotionally satisfying.

Chad Power. 84 mins. Three mini-martial artists use their grandfather‘s training to help their FBI agent dad nail a baddie. Sort of Home rl/(Hir'2 meets the Turtles (minus the suits) as the youngsters in the audience cheer their on-scr‘cen heroes as they kick the poo-poo out of a startlingly inept adult world. l‘ife: Robins. I Tom and Jerry: The Movie (U) (Phil Roman. US. 1992) With the voices of Richard Kind. Dana Hill. Charlotte Rae. 84 mins. That's right: ‘with the voices of'. The world's greatest cat and mouse act not only talk. but sing and dance their

way through their first feature. as they cope WTIIT

most convincing movie vrllian but is invested

with a very affecting undercurrent of emotional

vulnerability. Strathclyde: LiCl East Kilbride.

Gibson. US. 1993) Angela Bassett. Laurence

l‘ishburne. 118 mins. The life of Tina Turner

' presented as inspiration for women trying to escape from domestic abuse. While suffering

from the usual short cuts and polishings as any biopic whose subject is still alive. it boasts two

rriagnil'tcent central performances from Bassett

and Fishburne. who brings the right level of

seductive nastiness to Ike. Songs and period detail are good. General release. I The Young Americans ( 18) (Danny Cannon. l’K. 1993) Harvey Keitel. (‘raig Kelly. lain

. Glen. 109 mins. At last. a British movie that is

brave enough to be openly commercial and play directly to its young adult audience. (‘annon's

debut is a glossy. slick. in-your-face thriller.

which brings 15S cop Keitel to London's

nightclubs to investigate a series of drug-related murders. Plot gaps and dubious morals apart. it's just what the British film industry needed.
