Storyline

In the ruthless underground world of the yakuza, no one is more legendary than boss Kamiura. Rumored to be invincible, the truth is he is a vampire-a bloodsucking yakuza vampire boss! Among Kamiura's gang is Kageyama, his most loyal underling. However, the others in the gang view Kageyama with disdain and ridicule him for his inability to get tattooed due to sensitive skin. One day, assassins aware of boss Kamiura's secret arrive from abroad and deliver him an ultimatum: Return to the international syndicate he left years ago, or die. Kamiura refuses and, during a fierce battle with anime-otaku martial-arts expert Kyoken, is torn limb from limb. With his dying breath, Kamiura bites Kageyama, passing on his vampire powers to the unsuspecting yakuza. As he begins to awaken to his newfound abilities, Kageyama's desire to avenge the murder of boss Kamiura sets him on a course for a violent confrontation with Kaeru-kun, the foreign syndicate's mysterious and seemingly unstoppable leader!

This is pure horse crap
7 July 2015 | by contradiction_1981See all my reviews

This is pure crap, I expect a stylish dark toned movie from Takashi Miike, he could have made this a simple revenge flick with a tragic ending and a nice fight along the way.

But for the love of god a frog man? Gavanesgue monster with exploding volcanoes? This is utterly crap even for Japanese weird comedy standard, the fight scene are terrible, and Yayan is wasted in this putrid garbage.

There's no drama, no character development, not even logical comedy (if there's any), it's just pure 2 hours of horse manure, and at least give us a f**** showdown we paid our money for, not you throw punch i throw punch kinds of crap.

Seems like Miike is trying so hard to make an abstract garbage which is really garbage and none of the abstract. I want my money back
