Goofs

Saki chases a bomb-carrying classmate into a shopping mall. It's bright sunshine outside when they enter the mall, but on several occasions inside, skylights are visible showing that it is night outside. As the DVD featurette reveals, the mall interior sequences were filmed late at night. See more »

Don't think. No, just don't.
12 April 2008 | by painbunnySee all my reviews

I didn't know anything about this franchise when I dived in to this movie. I still don't. Maybe it's for the best. In terms of plot holes and 'what did just happen and why?' this goes so much beyond the basic action movie formula it's... Don't really know the word for it. You get the feeling there's lot of stuff that's just left out. If it were a Hollywood movie, it would feel like producer or distributing company intervention of the worst kind. But really, with my experience with Asian cinema, I really don't know. Maybe it's just the makers expect the audience to know the background or something?

So, it was really weird. But wow, I liked it. I admit (like others have said) it's slow in the middle. And when it picks up... Well I laughed. In a good way. Overall, it's really not that heavy on the action.

Just don't think about much... Or anything, and maybe you'll enjoy this as much as I did.
