The wild life in this film are a bunch of Yakuza thugs who enjoy the usual benefits of belonging to this particular criminal fraternity. Ironically obligation and humanity is their creed but their is very little in the way of benevolence reflected in this movie. Put simply the prinicple character (Sakai), an ex-boxer, gets caught up (he does not know how) in a comical but complex escapade that involves, for instance, blackmail (an incriminating video tape), a gay detective and a bizarre love affair. This film, however, is not standard fare and Aoyama uses a range of occasionally confusing cinematic devices to develop the story, where choronological integrity is replaced by flashbacks and digressions. Still I found the movie had sufficient cohesion to be enjoyable and there were some hilarious moments such as Ken's bout with Sakai (involving great camera work). Ultimately, however, the narrative flow eases towards a rather tame ending. Nevertheless, I will watch this film again as there is sufficent entertainment to look forward to.
