May contain spoilers, but i don't think so.
16 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

See, the first time through this movie will leave you saying, "What the toilet bowl did I watch this for?" The quality is pretty bad, some of the acting is bad. Generally, the movie isn't all too eye opening. In fact, I fell asleep my first time through. But since I spent $3.75 on a blind pick (the guy on the front + "crime has a new enemy" written on the cover made this so)I had to watch it. So I went back and re-watched it. If you like quiet, slow movies here's what's in store for you:

Story: As it says on the back...Mike Yokohama is a private investigator who comes across a job where he must retrieve a girl from a get away. At first glance this might look violent. You're wrong. This movie had almost as much violence as a man's morning ritual. The point of the movie wasn't about violence and there was some deeper meaning which made the movie somewhat worthwhile.

Video: Horrible. I hated the quality of it. The movie is really slow so it can put you to sleep really easily under the right circumstances. The quality gives an 80's feel to it.

Audio: Pretty good, it's subtitled so you don't have to worry about a crappy English dubbing. The music was pretty nice, but it gave a drowsy feel which helped put me to sleep the first time.

Overall: You might notice I've been negative about the movie. Well, it wasn't something that gave me an immediate satisfaction. The ending leaves questions. Here is what I recommend: See this movie. Chances are you'll catch it as a rental for a while. It's kinda fun but there are a lot of things which are deeper than the eye can see. ESPECIALLY THE ENDING. I gave this movie a 7 because I laughed at the end, a lot. In fact, it gives a sense of satisfaction. I recommend this movie to people who are willing to put aside some poor quality an enjoy a nice movie which reflects some bigger things.

P.S. There is a lot of symbolism in it. Look at element before you decide on the movie. Note: The end takes a few seconds to click.
