This is a straight forward story with lots of off the wall mini scenes/story's between the meat and potatoes of a very average revenge/gangster/drug tale.
The action sequences are pretty good to very good, and the gore level is not too bad(keep in mind this is Japanese in taste and style) Teah just does not make for a charismatic lead, but the rest of the cast were extremely watchable.
There is as always in these style of movies some light humour thrown it to lighten the violence.
This movie was good, but just not that satisfying or mindblowing...I recommend if you know the style and like the director.
