Takeshi Kitano Right on Beat
11 February 2016 | by FilmCuckooSee all my reviews

This movie is a 100% guaranteed Kitano style. The satire and comedy contained in this movie, is absolutely hilarious, although at points you aren't entirely sure where this is heading, or why there are some unnecessary scenes that didn't quite fit the set pace. I too would strongly recommend to ignore the poor IMDb ratings for this movie. You shouldn't even pay any attention to it, as the score is so obviously faked (42% of 1??! - yeah, right!) it makes me feel ill to think that there are people who would do that sort of thing. Regardless of that sad attempt to manipulate ratings, this is one of the best comedies by Takeshi Kitano. The seemingly western take on a very much Japanese thing, is actually a refreshing one. What some may miss about the inventiveness in this film, is the simple fact that not every one is, (or will ever be) able to understand one of the most difficult forms of comedy, satire. It seems that Kitano is purposely making fun of his own "serious" Yakuza -movies, with incredibly light touch, that makes everything seem so effortless in this movie. The idea of old, retired men "getting at it" one more time is very often used cliché in movies, need I remind of such movies as "The Bucket List", "The Unforgiven" and of course "Seven Samurai". However it must be kept in mind that Kitano's entire style doesn't appeal to everyone, nor will it never be understood by all. It's also absolute poppycock for someone to say that if you like this movie, or think it's good because you are "asianophilic caucasian" or just because it is by Kitano. I would recommend this movie to anyone, unreserved. It has it's low points, but one thing still makes me smile: The movie is stunningly funny, in the most hilarious way!. Well done Beat Takeshi!
