Ikuta will play Suzuki, a man who leaves his job as a schoolteacher in order to infiltrate an underworld organization and take revenge on the person who murdered his girlfriend. Suzuki will meet different assassins, Cicada and Whale, and the story will show how their lives will interlace. Asano will play Kujira (lit. “whale”), a contract killer who specializes in observing his targets, gaining insight into their state of mind and eventually manipulating them into committing suicide. Yamada’s character Semi (lit. “cicada”) is a fellow hitman who takes a more direct approach, utilizing his expertise with knives. ~~ Based on the novel "Grasshopper" by Isaka Kotaro.

This was freaking awesome. I got to watch Yamada Ryosuke go from 'Mummy I love you' and 'Cute but quirky' to 'I'm an attractive psychopath that you shouldn't piss off.' As Usual I wasn't disappointed with Ikuta Toma's acting. And the budget of this film must of been good as the cinematography was absolutely wonderful, the music was serene and really suited the neon noir atmosphere of the entire film. Someone previously wrote a review and said "DISAPPOINTING" I'm certain we didn't watch the same film, cus it was good, quirky and had tons of twists I was certainly not expecting. Even if the film isn't your taste disappointing isn't the word I'd use after, cus it definitely isn't something I'll quickly forget about nor will it leave me with a sour taste in my mouth, as it was perfectly executed and even had a sweet moral at the end.

Moral: One evil will spread into another and eventually catch up with you' Basically this movie is a huge piece of karma...

I PROMISE YOU WILL ENJOY IT

This was an utter dissapointment.
They missed the whole point that could have made this movie into a masterpiece, just focus on the main leads and build up the story from beginning to the end.
Instead they are throwing persons in the middel of the movie, the story is nowhere to be found and I have questions about everyones past, because in this movie their past is essential.
It such a let down because even tho the story overal sucks ass they are greatly acting, it had all the elements (actors/movieplay/based on a great novel) but they failed.
There was almost no music in the story so that also failed to build up any triggering emotions.
I would not rewatch movie.

Watch this soley if you love Ikuta Toma's work, but don't expect too much.
Skip this.. well just skip it.
