Pleasantly entertaining
7 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is based on a cartoon and reads like one: its shopping list of clichés runs longer than the movie itself, backed by an impossibly cheesy soundtrack (possibly a tribute to David Hasselhoff?), and a lead who's larger than life in all aspects - looks, morals, fighting skills etc. One cannot say it fails to convince, because it never attempts to, yet neither can one say that it shines in its genre, whatever that may be (anime office drama, or Kafkaesque superhero soap opera?)

Still,apart from some problems with rhythm and structure, its pleasantly entertaining. In a signature gesture, Miike had more fun making it than most people will have when they watch it.
