Final Episode
14 March 2005 | by glwrightSee all my reviews

I would have said "awful" but the other films were so great! It was such a disappointment after watching the others. At the end of the film there were too many loose ends, so much left behind unresolved with no closure for the main character or more importantly, the viewer. At this point in the series, I was having problems as well with everyone's inability to hold a gun straight. And why were they always falling down on the people they shot?

All I can say is that if this is based on the memoirs of a Yakuza boss, and these films held true to story... only then can I accept this "real" ending. Otherwise what a let down. Maybe I'm just sad it's over.
