Enjoyable Yakuza adventure
31 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Goro Kishitani was a thrill to watch as the main character of this film. He was a totally amoral gangster that was inducted into the Yakuza by saving the godfather's life. In that sense he had no knowledge of the rules of the family and made some mistakes - one fatal.

The rest of the film deals with his run from the family and the attempts of his prison brother, a high family member, to protect him. It just keeps getting more bizarre as he manages an escape from prison in a way that I would describe as vile and gross - but it worked! His treatment of women was the lowest. There are two or three rape scenes. There is certainly a lot of violence, but not gross violence.

It was a fascinating story directed by Takashi Miike (Ichi the Killer, Hostel).
