Great looking but not as fun as I'd hoped
11 September 2001 | by David AustinSee all my reviews

This movie is very similar in atmosphere to Seijun Suzuki's Tokyo Drifter. The best thing about it is the incredibly wild use of color, something one surprisingly rarely sees exploited in movies (aside from the occasional Dick Tracy or Umbrellas of Cherbourg). The film really goes all out on wild stylization and campy action. Also, no movie that features go-go dancing at regular intervals can be completely bad, regardless of how poor the dancing the is. However, the plot never really becomes interesting enough to justify the the love lavished on the sets and look of the film. Suzuki does this better in Tokyo Drifter, and if you like surreal sixties Japanese nuttiness, Branded to Kill massacres both. This is worth a rental but don't have too high expectations.
