Very very underated
10 March 2018 | by seanfinnauSee all my reviews

If you like movies like Eastern promises you will love this, strange things have been going on with critical reviews of Netflix movies lately and considering RT have this a laughable 10% critical when the audience score was 81% is completely stupid. This is a very well made movie that evokes similar feelings to the last samurai while excelling in not just story but also more modern editing and kinomatrography, acting, lighting, great soundtrack as well as a nice moody atmosphere. Jared Leto who lets be honest has a tendency to over act is great in the role which calls for more subdued acting. Is it a perfect movie ? Almost i'd put it right up there with the best crime thrillers and mob dramas. Some may find the editing a bit unusual but i liked the pacing and it fit the setting of 50's japan very well

Please anyone who wants to watch this please do dont pay attention to the critics the mouse is trying to rubbish good movies like this.
