Disappointing...By spp from manc , 23 Sep 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]Takeshi Miike's films are something of a puzzlement. They range from the Fantastic (Happiness of the Katakuris, Dead or Alive) to the good (Ichi the Killer) to this, which despite looking rather sumptious is actually rather tedious.
It's fragmented story and lack of cohesive narrative are a real drain on a film which looks very impressive. It's a shame it's spoiled by such a plodding pace.

Should have paid the electricity bill and turned the lights onBy papatez (330 reviews) from folkestone , 12 Jul 2012You don't necessarily have a masterpiece just because you have used every colour in the paintbox!!! Whoever put this together tried to use every trick in the director's armoury - coloured filters, moody shots, coarse focus, wobbly shots, crude sex and gratuitous violence. Did it work? No masterpiece, just a poorly completed painting by numbers picture that left me confused. Not about the movie but wondering why I left it running as long as I did.
straight from artBy juradino (815 reviews) from London , 09 Jul 2012Plot seems so simple that it is unfathomable as there are scenes of sex and violence and it is all to do with immigrants. Some want in and some want out. Ending is fanciful and reminds me of cover for Propaganda by Sparks. If you like this theme you might be better off watching Ariel.
Confused LinesBy a customer , 20 Jun 2011A bit disjointed.....I was disappointed..lacks coherent continuity..but fields some nice sequences ...not up to the usual standard.
dull as ditch waterBy shatsome (2 reviews) from Inverurie , 09 May 2008I enjoyed Shinjuku Triad Society, Rainy Dog was acceptable and so I thought I should complete the trilogy. I shouldn't have bothered. A few moments of humour and some nicely shot scenes, but overall there was virtually no plot and you really do not care about what is happening by the end of the film.
gratuous sex and violence no plotBy MUNCH (138 reviews) from Gorebridge , 17 Apr 2008This was a waste of time in my opinion the story was all overe the place but there was always time for gross sexual practices and extreme violence but why?
The film had no storyline that i could fathom and i turned the damn thing off half way through totally exhausted and confused.
i am a fan of Asian and world cinema but this is a parody of the excellent films emerging from Asia best avoided.
