Ichi The Killer Review
When a Yakuza boss named Anjo disappears with 300 million yen, his chief henchman, a sadomasochistic man named Kakihari, and the rest of his mob goons go looking for him. After capturing and torturing a rival Yakuza member looking for answers, they soon realize they have the wrong man and begin looking for the man named Jijii who tipped them off in the first place. Soon enough Kakihara and his men encounter Ichi, a psychotic, sexually-repressed young man with amazing martial arts abilities and blades that come out of his shoes. One by one Ichi takes out members of the Yakuza and all the while Kakihara intensifies his pursuit of Ichi and Ichi's controller Jijii. What will unfold as the final showdown between the tortured and ultra-violent Ichi and the pain-craving Kakihara takes place? This is just an absolutely crazy fucking movie! Awesome! From the very beginning of the movie you are grabbed and taken through this fucked up world full of Yakuza, Sadomasochists, Perverted Psycho cry-baby killers and other colorful and equally fucked characters. WITNESS! A man jerk off to a prostitute getting beaten up and raped by her pimp! SEE! A man get stuck like a pincushion with 10+ inch needles! HEAR! The sizzling of a mans skin as he gets Hot Fryer Oil poured onto his body! This movie is definitely NOT for people with a weak stomach. The way it was filmed and the effects are amazing and psychotic, the soundtrack is driving and fits the movie quite well. If you love horror movies, gangster movies and the like, than pick up this fuckin DVD immediately! I give it 4 3/4 stabs to the dome.
