Format: DVD
Dead or Alive (1999) was a straight to video police/yakuza cross-over that opened with a rock-video style montage and climaxed with a scene of jaw-dropping implausibility. It took on the clichés and characteristics of the usual police dramas that we're familiar with but infused them with all manner of bold and brash directorial flourishes and much in the way of attention grabbing shock sequences; from the sight of a stripper drowned in a paddling pool of excrement, to a vicious gun battle that brings about the end of the world. This follow up - which takes the same lead actors from the first DOA and drops then into a whole new setting as entirely new characters (giving us a sequel in the thematic sense alone) - tones down much of the first film's explicit giddiness in favour of a richer story with humanity, empathy and depth.

As a result, those new to the films of maverick director Miike Takashi might find this semi-sequel/follow up to be something of an understandable departure from the typically brash and attention grabbing style put forward in his more widely seen films, such like Ichi the Killer and Visitor Q (both 2001). Those with some familiarity however will be aware of Miike's more sensitive side from films like The Bird People in China (1998), Rainy Dog (1997), White Collar Worker Kintaro (2000) and the Great Yokai War (2005); which are certainly not troubling the 'Disney' studio when it comes to wholesome family entertainment, but at least show Miike to be a filmmaker capable of blending his tendencies for over-the-top action and cinematic excess, alongside emotional depth and intelligent character development.

An excellent movie. Straying away from the themes of dead or alive, this time Sho Aikawa and Riki Takeuchi are boyhood friends turned assasins re-united when they both try to make the same hit on a Yakuza mob boss in an attempt to incite a turf war. Going into hiding they meet up on the island they grew up on and remenisce about their boyhood friendship. Far from the crime of the city the characters get together to rid the world of evil gangs and drug lords to pay for vaccinations for 3rd world countries.
The story has some very clever turns and hidden mesages and although I had to read the subtitles to know what they're on about, the story captivated me just as well as any hollywood film i've seen in recent years without all the gimmicks.
This is by no means a sequel, it's a completely different story but if you look hard enough you can see some subtle references to the first story (No blowing up the far east though.) If you're not looking for a solely gangster, shoot em up type movie this might be the thing for you. An equal share of touching moments as of gun fights and action give it good balance and increase watchability.
Great storyline! great film! 5 out of 5! Get this now of regret it! :D

During an assassination job two professional hitmen accidentally meet, though not for the first time. It turns out that they were once childhood friends, and that fate has brought them both to the island of their youth. Whilst there they reminisce, and hatch a plan to make the world a better place using their talents for murder.

Dead or Alive 2, along with Ichi the Killer, represents the pinnacle of Takashi Miike's extraordinary and much-misunderstood filmmaking career. The film dazzles the viewer with a spectacle of cinematic virtuosity. Everything about this film is odd, unexpected, or innovative, but leaving aside the stylistic brilliance of the movie, we find that it also works wonderfully in the drama department (something that many reviewers seem to miss when they get distracted by obsessing over all the weird moments in the film). Make no mistake: this film is not just about cheap shocks and "strangeness", it's a touching drama about lost innocence and responsibility. I won't give any further details away, so go see it for yourself.

Oh, and if you haven't seen the first film in the series, then don't worry because the sequel has almost nothing in common with its predecessor, besides sharing the main actors.

Gets two stars for actors and some genuinely entertaining and even poignant scenes, but overall this is garbage like you've never seen. First of all, Riki Takeuchi, sho aikawa, and kenichi endo are as watchable as always and are the only reason i watched till the end. Takashi Miike is a director that doesn't seem know what he's doing or what he wants to do with his movie - and you can tell he's trying to make this into some kind of art film about childhood - but he doesn't succeed at all and instead he ruins what should have been a fun zany action movie about silly and disturbing yakuza; and turns it into a boring indulgent waste of time with no action scenes or even a purpose. Its almost embarrassing to watch. Avoid this movie like the plague.
