Definitely a lesser Miike
11 April 2005 | by zetesSee all my reviews

In fact, despite a few directorial flourishes, this feels like it was something that Miike had little interest in. No matter. It's only one of seven films he directed in 1999. It's actually a pretty good piece of forgettable junk. It reminds me a lot of the kind of late 80s / early 90s movie you might find on HBO at two in the morning. Cheesy plot, cheesy dialogue, cheesy pop songs. The American movie that kept popping into my mind was Stone Cold with Brian Bosworth. The plot of WCWR has a salaryman vying to keep the business he works for afloat. The competition, unfortunately, plays dirty. Eventually Rintaro has to take the law into his own hands. I would probably categorize this as a guilty pleasure, but I did enjoy it to an extent.
