Pleasant watch!!!

Overall a pleasant watch. But I feel like it would go under the radar if it didnt have Takashi Miike attached to it. Story is generic one - a boxer with no direction accidently crosses path a call girl, gets embroiled in a twisted ploy and lands in a crossfire between the new Triad and the ageing Yakuza.

The supporting characters were much more interesting than the leads, particularly Becky who plays a crazy girlfriend. Her character was the craziest and the scariest of them all. Reminds me of Harley Quinn.

I think romance wasn't the main angle for this movie, although there are many sweet moments between the leads which imply that they care about one another.

The movie is intended to be a comedy action thriller. And I must say few comedy scenes had be doubling over in laughter.

Blood and gore are appropriate, not too little and not too much.

Pretty solid

I randomly stumbled upon this movie. I think you would like it, if you like thriller/action movies. My favorite scenes were always the ones between the two leads, Leo and Yuri. There is some great cinematography. There's lots of blood, and quite a few comedic moments, but it's not full on campy. As someone who really enjoys campy and bizarre movies (especially Japanese, as they happen to do it best lol), I felt somewhat fulfilled on that part. That being said, it's not a lot, so even if you don't like things like that, I think you can still get some value out of this movie.
