WOW
13 April 2018 | by egx-33206See all my reviews

Thrills, suspense, evil, yakuza, budding capitalist, hot women who flaunt their bodies, sex and of course murder.

What else can you ask for especially when in each case everything is done to an 11?

Compare this film to the copy/paste, reboot, remake, sequel routine that studio tools and hacks like JJ Abrams are putting out and you will see why America has become the laughing stock of the world. US has just fallen behind (thanks dotard too)
