Original,violent and romantic gangsterdrama
22 October 2001 | by (Kista, Stockholm, Sweden) – See all my reviews

This is not an action movie. It is an entertaining character study of small time streetgangsters and for those of you who likes to watch something different than the ordinary, something romantic yet violent and who appreciates that all people are not like everyone else, I strongly recommend The Odd One Dies. The story is simple, in a good way, and easy to follow. The dialogue is very good and when Takeshi Kaneshiro does not speak it is often even better (you will understand me when you see the movie). Lead actors T Kaneshiro and Carman Lee are outstanding. In my opinion this is a better movie than the much hailed Expect the Unexpected (see my review) from the same talented director, and even though his The Longest Nite is more violent I find The Odd One Dies superior to that one too, with a more engaging and clearer story and characters to really care about. I found the movie involving from start to finish. Thankfully, there is no childish Hong Kong humor in this movie but it will still have you laughing in a couple of places. And yes, you will see some bloodsquibs too. 9/10
