Dull!
19 August 2008 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is a very, very dull and talky film that seems to be based on the classic Hollywood Noir film, THE NARROW MARGIN. In both, a mobster's girlfriend is scheduled to testify against him and her life is worthless. This time, however, the mobster is in charge of a black market human organ ring! So it's up to our hero (who plays the part like a zombie most of the time) to save this rather annoying and banal lady.

One of the only interesting, though totally irrelevant aspects of the film, is the mob boss. He's a weird old guy who likes to dress in drag--and in the most amazing costumes. They are so flamboyant and silly, at least this offers a few odd diversions whenever he appears. Plus, he's totally crazy and offered a few surprises. The other interesting diversion is all the gratuitous nudity--some of which is very violent and stupid. Don't watch it for the action, as there is very little and the violent action scenes are just dumb--often filmed in very grainy print and with tons of what looks like raspberry syrup for blood! There are many good Japanese films out there--so many that I just can't think of a good reason to watch this tripe.

My score of 3 is very, very generous.
