Stylish but Pointless Violence
5 October 2012 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

The psychopath Arano (Kôji Chihara) arrives in Tokyo with a bag full of knives with the intention of killing Yakuza. He gets close to the smalltime gangster Kamijo (Onimaru), who was assigned by the old Yakuza Boss (Akaji Maro) to kill the gangster Matsunaga (Tetta Sugimoto), but he is not a killer.

When Arano kill two American drug dealers, Kamijo steals the boom box with drugs. But the young prostitute Alice (Rin Ozawa) convinces Arano to rob the drugs and travel with her to Fiji. When she disappears with the drugs, Arano begins his rampage against Yakuza.

"Poruno Sutâ", a.k.a. "Tokyo Rampage", is a stylish Japanese movie with pointless violence of the Japanese youth. The nihilist and alienated lead character has a confused motivation for his crime spree – Yakuza is not needed – but any development of the reason of his behavior. The graphic violence is very well choreographed and the special effects work. My vote is six.
