Product description

Product Description

From cult director Takashi Miike (Audition, Ichi the Killer) comes this fast paced, black humoured Yakuza movie. Following the death of his boss, Kunisada (Riki Takeuchi Dead or Alive, Battle Royale 2) embarks upon a journey of revenge against the rival gang who ordered the hit. However, all is not how it seems as Kunisada uncovers the truth behind the shady deals that exist within his own clan. Pursued by two hit men Kunisada finds himself both hunter and the hunted as cross and double cross leads to murder, mayhem and a bazooka! Cut to the psychedelic prog rock album Satori by Flower Travellin Band, Deadly Outlaw Rekka is a sensational ride with the modern Yakuza and features an astonishing performance by Takeuchi as well as an appearance by the legendary Sonny Chiba (The Street Fighter, Kill Bill).

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Another Yakuza film from Takashi Miike. This is a familiar story of a Yakuza having to battle rivals and his own gang who betray him. The film kicks off with a very good montage of action and rock music. Its not quite up there with the opening of Dead Or Alive but its still impressive. The story then settles down and, like Dead Or Alive, has a fair bit of dialogue and becomes a bit ponderous. I was never bored by the film but as with all Miike films I have seen I found my self waiting for the next shock moment. This is a strength and a weakness. He makes great scenes but isn't very good at sustaining a story or developing characters. Anyway, things escalate into more voilence. Our protagonist pulverizes some rival Yakuzas with a crow bar. He then blows up a couple of buildings with a bazooka. Its all very tongue in cheek and highly silly and entertaining. Its fairly bloody and in some of the scenes blood splashes all over the camera lens which looks quite cool. There is also plenty of black humour. My crticisms are the underdeveloped story and characters as mentioned before. Also, the ending is a dissapointment and makes little sense. A climatic fight with an awesome amount of fire-power in which no one gets even seriously injured. Interestingly, this was made in the same year as Graveyard of Honor which I think is a better film. The quality of the DVD is average. Its a bit gloomy and there are some subtitle errors. Still, an entertaining 90 mins no doubt.

This is a great little companion piece to dead or alive. It's your basic yakuza revenge story with the twists and craziness of a Miike flick. Unlike some of his other films, it doesn't tend to drag much. It's quite grainy and deliberately choppily edited. The soundtrack is great and the main character is fairly likeable. I prefer this to dead or alive part 3 which I​ thought was really dull.

After he 'feels' the assassination of his ageing Yakuza boss through some sort of psychic bond, Kunisada then somehow gets out of prison and goes on a killing spree born of revenge.
Being somewhat of an unpredictable loose cannon that suffers from violent outbursts, Kunisada teams up with his most trusted Yakuza buddy and together they are given the go ahead to kill the rival boss of the Otsaki clan as an agreed act of retribution, but little does Kunisada know that this is a set up by the 'rival' clans (his own included) now working together, and that he is seen as an expendable firebrand.

I thoroughly enjoyed this one, it's got some lively characters, humour and plenty of visceral action.
Sure this isn't Takeshi Miike's best work, but it does exactly what it says on the tin, and although it's not maybe quite as wildly explosive or comic-booky as some of his other films (like the Dead or Alive trilogy) it still refrains from taking itself or it's subject matter too seriously, providing it's audience with a less than subtle, rock-art journey down to vengeance valley.
The film has several highlights but Kunisada storming/blowing to smithereens his enemies HQ with a rocket launcher takes some beating when it comes to lunatic, balls-out, hilarity.
Riki Takeuchi (Kunisada) also getting to show Paul Newman how to do a slightly better job at dealing with a Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid style ending.

Sonny Chiba has a brief role playing a gang boss, as does Miike regular Renji Ishibashi, both were good to see.

The Taiwan DVD, in the name of Violent Fire comes with English and German subs but nothing else. The picture quality is standard.

4/5
