Storyline

A series of bombings occur and police track a lead, where they find the male protagonist Ichiro Suzuki and believe he is somehow involved. After psychiatric evaluation and rigorous questioning, the man is found to be emotionally vacant, highly intelligent with a savant-like photographic memory, physically strong and unable to feel any pain. The female lead who plays psychiatrist Mariko Mashiya is intrigued and attempts to discover what and how he came to this state, fueled by her own past personal tragedy and determination to seek the truth. Is he the psychopath they are all looking for? Written by Kelvin T

Masterpiece from THE MASTER !
19 November 2014 | by (Leipzig) – See all my reviews

A Superhero movie which goes past far beyond our radical notion. A villain, rather a "Madman", who thinks chaos can be evolved to infinite proportion. A psychotic anarchist's horrible deportment where the morale of the civilians are plunged into the gaping darkness and the dark hero's stoic endurance to overcome it and convincing us to believe that "you either die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become the villain". A world which is teeming with 'schemers' can turn into a fragment of individuals where 'chance' is the ultimate profit!

A formidable, colossal and terrific performance from Late Shôta Sometani. Considerable support from Fumi Nikaidô , Michael Caine, Tôma Ikuta, Renji Ishibashi. An Orgasmic background music by Masahiro Kômotor. Extraordinary Technology.Exceptional Screenplay from none other than Urio Shudô.Tomoyuki Takimoto's best directed ever which will go as one of the best films ever made in this generation.
