4.0 out of 5 stars Great film...but not uncut!, 14 Jan 2006
This review is from: Ichi The Killer [DVD] [2003] (DVD)
I really enjoyed this movie, however this version is NOT uncut. Infact several minutes have been cut completely, such as the notorious 'nipple-torture' scene. The film itself is funny, well made, well scripted and Takashi Miike has made sure the viewer is constantly kept on the edge of their seat.
The only minor niggle with the film is much of the violence is so over the top that it is almost cartoonish, and therfore has been created using CGI graphics, which in certain scenes looks incredibly fake. E.g. in one scene Ichi completly saws a man in half with the blade on his ankle. All of this scene is computerised. It's almost a live action manga.
The prospect of sadomasochism make put people off from watching this film, however a true film fan will look past the gore, violence and nudity. It's not sickly to watch, however much of the gore is cartoonish and therfore takes away the harshness and brutality of it.
All acting is superb.
