Look, I'm sure you got respect for these people because they wear silk pajamas and they bow like you're the fucking sun god when they pour the coffee. Frankly, I don't give a shit about their rules or their traditions or whatever the fuck it is that you're here to try to explain to me. We won! What's the point of winning a war if now you gotta worry about stepping on Japs' toes?
I wouldn't call them Japs.
Okay. So you're one of those?
One of what?

I for one thoroughly enjoyed this Netflix film, which is rare. Not sure what th deal with Metacritic rating it so low because I found it to be above average compared to most streaming originals. If you don't know the story, go ahead and watch the trailer, and for me, I was immediately drawn in to it by the trailer, because I'm a big fan of Asian crime films. And this film was not a let down in nearly any way. I loved the story, such a unique one in the time of super hero garbage and needless remakes of classics. The story pulled me in and the world it creates is a well represented one, definitely channeling other very successful Asian crime films. The action was true to the genre and definitely satisfied me.
Unfortunately not all the actors shined. Don't get me wrong, some had great performances, but others just seemed to be playing themselves, which I hate. As I said before, the world is well put together, seems very authentic with pretty good cinematography. I didn't like the pacing at some parts of the film but that really had no effect on the enjoyable experience. So I would say this is a pretty decent breathe of fresh air to see on Netflix, better than the majority of bombs that they put out into the public.
I would highly recommend it.
