Sort of a godfather, Japanese style
22 July 2007 | by See all my reviews

Or better Miike Style. Although this one is different from his other movies. Not in terms of violence (he likes his violence and blood, so be aware of that, no faint hearted should watch this), but more film-making wise!

He changes Genres as he likes (from Horror to Action to Thriller), but his movies all feel kind of the same. Maybe this one is different, because it is a remake of another Japanese movie or maybe he went out and thought, let's try something different this time. Whatever the reasons, the result is indeed one of his better offerings (in my view) of all his output. This will not be the movie he will be remembered by, his cult status was achieved by movies like "Ichi The Killer", "Dead or Alive" series or "Audition", but it's one you should watch!
