Storyline

Set on the island of Kyushu, it tells the story of successful high school student Riki Fudoh, who leads a double life in organized crime. With his gang of underage assassins (forerunners of the kiddie killers in Dead or Alive 2 (2000), including five-year-olds with hand guns and a teenage stripper shooting deadly darts from her vagina) he not only controls the goings-on at his school, but aspires to take over criminal affairs on the entire island. Fudoh's true motivations are not just a lust for power. An extensive flashback at the film's opening shows how as a child he witnessed the grisly murder of his older brother at the hands of his yakuza boss father and his subsequent wish for revenge. Buckets of blood flow (literally) when Riki and the kids start an assassination campaign against the top figures of the local yakuza, with his father as the ultimate goal. The underworld goes into a state of panic and calls in mysterious and powerful problem solver Nohma. Riki's father meanwhile ... Written by Fudoh

Blew me away
30 January 1999 | by (Karlsruhe, Germany) – See all my reviews

And I'm not blown away easily.

Plot: Yakuza boss kills his older son to settle some gang matters. Younger son witnesses the deed, and swears revenge. After the son has built his own criminal network in school (recruiting his fellow students), he starts to extract revenge upon the yakuza, his father, and the older generation in general. Then it gets quite bloody. I mean, more so.

This movie is rather full of violence. And nudity. And stuff I probably can't mention without being censored :-) People of the "decent citizen" variety may get heart attacks.

The movie feels like a japanese manga strip turned to real live. A lot of typical elements are readily found: the cool high school crimelord, his deadly girl-henchmen in school uniforms, the bully kid that's twice as big as any teacher, little gadgets that came straight from James Bond, etc. Add to that a hefty dose of how some japanese seem to view that whole "respect your elders" stuff, and you get a hugely entertaining ride into the japanese subconsciousness. Or something like that, anyway.
