Not very exciting and talkie
28 January 2001 | by (Amsterdam, the Netherlands) – See all my reviews

This is not a very exciting film. It is about two schoolfriends who grow apart, with one becoming a yakuza and another a business man. When the leader of the crime family dies a succession war ensues and both men meet each other again. There's too much focus on the internal battles in the yakuza clan, with the usual ridiculous amount of characters and sub-plots, to make the film really work as a drama about the relationship between the two men and the yakuza spend to much time negotiating instead of killing each other to make the film work as a yakuza film. This was probably an attempt at making a film that works at both levels, like Martin Scorcese can do, but it fails at both, although there are some good scenes.
