Dead or Alive
Action • 1999 • 1 hr 45 min
Besides the last five minutes, a super serious gangster epic that is very engaging
It's Miike... Kinda gross at times, plot's unhinged, a pretty fun watch if you have a strong stomach.
very interesting cat and mouse type story that'll leave you questioning what you just watched by the end
It wasn’t as insane as I wished it to be until the ending and most of miike’s shock didn’t Land with me like his later works
Takashi Miike, what the fuck?
As Miike as it gets
Ryūichi and his small gang of Triad vie for control of the Japanese underworld in a crime-ridden Shinjuku quarter while Detective Jojima tries to bring it down.
Two contract killers cross paths in the middle of the same job and realize they are childhood friends. Together they take a break from killing and visit the small island they once called home. After reflecting on their past lives they decided to team up and use their talents in killing for good... much to the upset of the crime syndicates.
