But before Mai can make amends, she is unfortunately killed in a traffic accident. Distraught with her death, Mai's father implements his ongoing research of recording a person's memory into a microchip. His years of work finally pay off and Mai is alive again--through a computer.

Sucktastic Bomb - Notable Only For the Miike Influence
28 May 2007 | by zillion29See all my reviews

Wow. This movie is a serious stinker. Bad special effects, terrible plot points seemingly ripped straight out of the Matrix and Tron, and meanderings into N*Sync dance routines really hamstring this movie from the get-go. I didn't exactly hate it, but it was one of the last domestically available Miike flicks that I hadn't seen and now I know how this one filtered down to the bottom of the list. Sure, there are a handful of scenes that could be called Miike-ian: (the assassin guy turning and looking pensively down the illuminated hallway, the bats flying in the city street, the blossoms falling beneath the beach sakura tree . . .). But for the most part, the film is just a cheesy vehicle for Speed to try and prove that they can act. No dice, ladies.
