Supernatural Spine-Wrencher: A+
29 March 2012 | by (Pakistani Residentual Area) – See all my reviews

The former-agent of FBI Jun Shirogane comes hired from its former-connects and Minamida lover in order to enter in a group of secret agents and to contrast the catatonia that they operate against the world-wide order. Like cover, Jun Shirogane enters in an association of Wrestler, the LLPW, so as to to be able to turn the indisturbata world without to arouse suspicions, and for the occasion it takes the name of Silver.

Jun strongly is motivated to fight the evil, from the moment that while it was in the USA for a Borneo of Karate, a group of Yakuza has exterminated completely her family. And therefore, the first adversary who finds itself of forehead is dark lady Nancy Otori, Queen of the sadomaso, that it is usual to skincare and to manipulate personages pertaining to the high spheres, of the gangsterism and not… The scenario, here one of the most large limits of the film: the film limps for an hour and twenty minuter en without to get passionate, the situations are allowed nearly to case and the personages are little interesting plates and. And one is bored to us, decidedly. Not to mention the most open end that cannot not inversive or of personages who appear and scorpion (the overflow is a personage who is not understood who is and that he appears in a single scene but that seems a cortisone beautiful powerful. The only indication is the fact that this encumber comes from the unidiomatic Whipping Hole, probably one lair of gigolo). From how much I read on Agitator di Tom Mes this Silver pilot of a series never realised is been born like episode, therefore if we want to find attenuating to the conclusion completely, here.

As far as the personages the situation is aggravated from the fact that the actors are rather anonymous in their performances, beginning from the protagonist whom it interprets Jun, that is Petronia the Atsuko Sakuraba, lucky person owner of two breasts that could make competition to those of Anna Ohura. But, as very you will know, in the greater part of films it is not not only recited with the torte (or palomino), and in as far as espressività the Sakuraba it is not just the maximum. The other actors are arch' they online with the film, from Kenji Haga that interprets Minamida to Yasukaze Motomiya that is the killer with the forecastle. The more interesting personage - within the limits of the film - is perhaps that one of Nancy Otori/Keiji Matsuda, the vampire dado ma-so that he seems to resume in feminine key the role of Shu-Ming Wang/Tomorowo Taguchi in Shinjuku Triad Societyand to anticipate the unattainable Kakikhara/Tadanobu Asano of Ichi the Killer. But if in two films as soon as cited the two personages they have thickness, also perché he interprets to you from two optimal actors, in the event of Nancy Otori the personage remains however in surface, and several the excesses to which she he undergoes himself (strains itself of the wax on the breast, Roda from educated regarding the mutilations of a Kakihara) or to which subjects its victims (fustigazioni on the penis - obviously peculator, sodomizzazioni, drink made up of urine) do not succeed to hit to bottom the spectator, tearing tutti' to more a orison displeased. To visual level the film is not however all to throw, inasmuch as some worthy mikado of famous is always: a pair of scenes that probably see Silver in action with its preferred arm (the monotone

  • of silver) is amusing. Still better the insole scene, than protozoa
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, with a killer yakuza such and which to Leatherface. But all that not enough absolutely to resolver the tenor of the film. Vabbè, best that nothing.

Cast Atsuko Sakuraba (Jun "Silver" Shirogame) Kenji Haga (Minamida) Keiji Matsuda (Nancy Otori) Kôji Tsukamoto (Toodori) Hisao Maki (trainer of Karate) Yasukaze Motomiya (killer Dark Insect/Viper Hole) Rumi Kazama (if same - allenatrice of wrestling) The thematic miikiane sink inexorably like the rest of the film, emerging timidly here and but remaining hardly rough sketch, like if the director it did not have just wants to develop them. Most obvious it is that one of the outcast in the cloth of the protagonist; woman, coming from orphan of parents and from the USA. For the rest, little other.
