Trivia

Takashi Miike cut this movie to the strains of the 1971 progressive rock album "Satori" by the Flower Traveling Band, which he learned of through costars Joe Yamanaka and Yûya Uchida, who were also the band's founding members. Miike found the album to be way ahead of its time and was delighted at how well and inconspicuously it cut into a movie made 30 years later. See more »

Good Yakuza thriller
30 July 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I saw this last night, assuming that since it was a Takashi Miike film it would be either ace or at least interesting. I finished up thinking it was ace, although I expected more madness. It turned out to be a well paced, entertaining thriller, with decent action, a spot of violence and importantly, good plot and characters. Riki Takeuchi was impressive as the deadly main character and everyone else gave compelling performances too, keeping me interested and following the plot. The plot was moderately complex but the film kept things gripping and not too difficult to follow. Unlike some Takashi Miike films, it wasn't too uneven in pace or tone, nor did it try to be deep and philosophical. It certainly wasn't mindless, but not pretentious either. I was vaguely reminded of Kinji Fukasaku's old Yakuza films, or at times Takeshi Kitano, just with Miike's unique style to the proceedings. Though not as much of a blast to the system as some of the directors better known films, I'd say this is one of his better ones all round. It's more traditional than one might expect, but still highly recommended.
