Another solid Yakuza film from Miike!!!!
20 April 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Great movie from Takashi Miike, its a standard take on Yakuza movies and is very well made.

Miike tries a new media and experiments with many techniques he hasn't used before, i found it very entertaining to see him using new things that he hasn't used before. Great acting and is another great Yakuza film from the great Takashi Miike.

This isn't as violent as some of his other films, although being a Yakuza film it definitely has its share.

Enjoy this film!!!! Miike fans and others who haven't seen many of miikes movies will all find this movie entertaining, far from his best work, but still a very solid movie.
