Good Lord! They released it UNCUT???,
This review is from: Dead Or Alive [DVD]  (DVD)
First up - This film is nothing like Miike's other film so far released in the UK (Audition). This is a Yakuza Vs Triad thriller as opposed to a nasty psychological horror. Secondly, this film is EXTREMELY explicit in what it depicts. There are huge gunfights, drugs, sex and humiliation all of a sort that would get this review banned from this site if I described it in detail. I'm VERY surprised that the BBFC allowed this through uncut, especially the scene with the dog and the scene with the paddling pool. If you like your films hard and nasty, this is for you. Also, if you like the films of Beat Kitano Takashi, you'll enjoy this.
One bad point - This is a Tartan DVD, and as such the picture quality could be better.
