Takeshi is come back...but...
27 April 2015 | by lpo_townSee all my reviews

I worked for Tohokushinsya and Office Takeshi for several years. To this day I still do not understand why there are people (most probably "Asianophilic" Caucasians) who try to give meaning to a a Asian film which, for all intents and purposes, just does not have any deep meaningful messages to impart. Because if this was an American or English film, it would have been slated as boring and a waste of time. But just because it is a Japanese Takeshi, there are people who are automatically impressed and seek to find hidden and meaningful truth in something which is actually as empty as the abyss.... Anyway there is nothing that worth thinking. There are only stupidity and violence toward ordinary people...sad......the cinematography is seemed to be almost out of focus in the entire film.

This is the one I hated the most was the lead character. I guess that TKC's stupidity is reached the maximum point in 2015.
