As dynamic as Kurosawa's High and Low.
6 February 2000 | by skyhawk-6See all my reviews

Finally a fast paced contemporary thriller from Japan! Harada manages to orchestrate the cast, crew and extra the way Kurosawa worked in High and Low, with shorter schedule and smaller budget. The shareholders' meeting episode is an homage to Mr. Smith Goes to Washington and its message is quite strong under the circumstance. Japanese honchos need this kind of blow and it does have an impact on them.
