  • This was very bad for violence and murder and even between criminal gangs over the top, not for the faint hearted

  • Enjoyable and rather good gangster thriller about a family of Japanese gangsters with a lone wolf after them. Not bad with great acting and heaps of impressive gore and torture but it falls apart a bit towards the end. Plus the storyline is very thin for this kind of story but its def worth a view and rental but it could had been so much better.

  • i was looking foreward to this title. i was actually slightly bias and was always going to give this a very good rating as it was from one of my most fav. directors. He became so due to his installments from 'masters of horror', which i loved and i expected no less here. I got what i was looking for (he is one sick puppy), and that's another thing i like about him
