Lame comedy

4/10
Author: addick-2 from Nashua NH via London
9 February 1999

Just because you can find this title in the foreign movie section of your local video shop, don't be fooled into thinking that this is an arty, clever or even witty movie. What you will get is a lame comedy that were it in English would be derided for its bad acting, poor jokes and crass storyline. The central premise that the Yakuza are just big bullies who only need someone to stand up to them is at best simplistic if not downright dangerous, as the director himself found out when he was stabbed by the Yakuza shortly after the film's release. Top marks for a strong female lead but that, I am afraid, is the film's only redeeming feature.
