Hmmm.. this starts off really well, it’s a madcap plot with lots of crazy twists. And a song and dance. And some pretty funny jokes ja.
But unfortunately it veers off into boring. Reet boring. “Have sex with me because I’m a virgin and can’t be a virgin yakuza” boring. And stupid. The main character, an undercover cop, spares a yakuza who knows he is a cop – that wouldn’t happen in real life dude. You’d be dead.
Shame coz Miike Takashi has made some great movies, Lesson of the Evil (school master massacres an entire school) was awesome last year.. but seems like he needs an editor.
First hour good, second hour bad.
