one of the most entertaining movies ever.
13 September 2003 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

The first 3 Episodes, which the most people outside japan know as Urotsukidoji 1 Legend of the Overfiend, are together 1 movie like no other. It is mind blowing, and everybody who is blocked in his inner walls and morals will have very big difficulty in understanding the complete power of this movie. I love movies now already for years but this movie was bigger than everything I saw before. It is a modern art movie for me, of course the production was limited in view of financial affairs. It is sure not a quality made movie like big productions of disney or akira, ghost in the shell, but beside of this problem it is a epic movie which mixes nearly all genres. It is Horror, Action, Erotic, Hardcore Porn, Splatter,Fantasy, but also Drama and Tragedy. It is also very emotional and a Love Story with a end full of tragedy. All this happens inside a great Story in only about 2 hours +. It is sure not for children, and I understand if women have also a problem with this movie, but for open minded people it can be a experience like no other. The cut version which has a running time of 106 min., is not really worse than the uncut version, because the most missing parts are the hardcore porn parts, which are not that important. But anyway I recommend the uncut version. Unlimited Movie Entertainment.
