A brilliantly executed escalation of violence and revenge.
11 July 2005 | by (Montreal, Quebec) – See all my reviews

Love it or hate it, this movie will definitely have an impact. It starts with a gratuitous murder that triggers a downward spiral of revenge between two rival factions: middle-aged women known as "The Midoris" and a group of young slackers.

With each gruesome murder comes a slightly more powerful retaliation, which leads to the spectacular finale.

Characters are deep and well thought out. Most of them being completely insane. Yoshio Harada (Gessai the Assassins' Sensei from Azumi) is hilarious as a petty arms dealer with a delusional fixation on what is the greatest plague in human history and a dubious definition of a "noble cause".

You will either laugh yourself silly or be utterly disturbed. You shouldn't miss it either way.
