A yakuza enforcer is ordered to secretly drive his beloved colleague to be assassinated. But when the colleague unceremoniously disappears en route, the trip that follows is a twisted, surreal and horrifying experience.
In order to settle a business dispute, a mob leader murders one of his own teenage sons. The surviving son vows to avenge his brother's death, and organizes his own gang of teenage killers to destroy his father's organization.
I watched this latest Miike movie at Independent Movie Festival of Istanbul ( IF Istanbul 2014). As i mentioned this is typical Miike movie with lots of laughs or surprises. Some scenes have been made very absurd consciously, but i really liked the first part especially. The only minus of Reiji is the length, it is more than 2 hours and the pace of it gets lower minute by minute. If you are a Miike fan like me, give it a try, you probably like it. If you don't know anything about Miike, this movie may be one of the best starters, before entering his darker and more disturbing movies.
P.s. Not exactly spoiler; but at the end it will be shown that there will be definitely sequel movie, which i will be glad to see.
