Great style, so-so story
A very cool 60's hipster style movie. It looks almost like a Seijin Suzuki film right down to having Jo Shishido playing a hitman. Unfortunately it doesn't pay-off quite as well as a Suzuki film. If your going to make a "youth crime" sort of film, you have to push that exploitation factor a bit more. The violence and action were just a bit too restrained.
