I mainly saw this movie because i found out it had the vocalist of the Japanese Rock band Buck-Tick (Atsushi Sakurai- who plays the mysterious man in the nasty coat who comes in). I'm very sad that he's not even listed in the actors! Supposedly for being a first time actor i thought he did very well! However, i was surprised i actually enjoyed it.
Although it's short,i thought it gave the right amount of closure, and was entertaining. Plus Atsushi Sakurai is pretty darned good looking for being a super old Jrocker. The Director seems to know what he is doing when he's making such a short movie. The camera angles are creative and good, and the actions sequences (thuogh not the best) still keep you entertained.
Not to mention the incredibly fun ending song "Sacrifice" sung by non other than Atsushi Sakurai himself.
