Quotes

Yoshi: You look surprised, Hiroki. Cost me a few scars but a man's got to pay his dues to get ahead.
Jack Ellis: You lying son of a bitch.
Yoshi: You should have a word with your wife about lying, Hiroki.
Jack Ellis: Why are you doing this?
Yoshi: Status, rank, power. All our lives, respect and loyalty for the family that did save us and made us predators when we would have been prey. When I didn't go with you, a part of me died, Hiroki. And I suffered for a while. And then it came to me like a moment of clarity. An epiphany. What died ...

What a pile of absolute rubbish
21 February 2012 | by (Thailand) – See all my reviews

Sorry, but I cannot for the likes of me understand how this piece of garbage can have a 7.0 rating here! It makes a mockery of the rating system.

Rarely have I ever came across such a terrible piece of rubbish as this so called "Movie" It is 90 minutes of pathetic kicking and bitch slapping, that is all it is - nothing more, so if you like to sit for 1 1/2 hours watching a bunch of ham actors grunting slapping kicking (cuddling a teddy bear) then I feel sorry for you.

I just cannot understand how it got its rating of 7, if it had made 2 it was doing well.

The only redeeming feature about this movie is when it finally ends, and that should have happened after about 2 minutes.

Absolute garbage.
