Gonin-lite
28 February 1999 | by (PA) – See all my reviews

Gonin 2 suffers from its narrative's aimlessness and implausibilities; paper-thin, mostly unsympathetic characters; and cinematography, lacking the first film's precision and slickness. Ken Ogata is squandered. Bottom line: Notwithstanding a handful of admirable moments, it's a slightly exploitive crime caper flick that appears insipid and sloppy next to the first.
