Slow-paced story about 7 old men hanging out
9 August 2018 | by nanancaySee all my reviews

Surprisingly slow moving. The main characters don't form a Yakuza to get revenge, they form it simply because they miss the Yakuza life. Thus the movie is more about men hanging out more than the lifestyle, which I found to be a better plot than actually having an established plot.

I found the cast to be overacting, as most Japanese comedies do. It was almost too much for me.

Slapstick with a few Boke-Tsukkomi scenes (Back and forth bantering) are repetitive, few laugh out loud hilarious scenes but an enjoyable watch if you can get past the first half of the movie.
