I didn't expect much of this movie but I ended up pleasantly surprised.

The characters were the usual archetypes of wounded 20 somethings, wise elderly and nasty gangsters. However, as a genre film, I don't think the movie suffered for their use. I enjoyed the interactions between the protagonists and the warmth in their makeshift family.

The main character, Goro, is suitably mysterious. But well, he's played by Fujiwara Tatsuya, and that guy has star charisma; he always sells his intelligence and rage pretty well, and plays the smartest or most intense guy in the room (sometimes both). He can elevate b-movie material just by being there.

Also, this movie rewards the viewer with several genuinely good action sequences; they are well executed but should be noted for their chaotic choreography. I liked how raw and undisciplined these scenes were because it shows how little need there really is for martial arts precision when the fights are kept real.

It was an enjoyable movie with an ending I didn't expect. I recommend it to anyone interested in japanese movies of this genre. You will have a good time with the subtle course of the film.

Liked it a lot. Fujiwara does a great job too, compared to what I've seen him do before. More people should definitely watch it.
