Watched with my flatmate who is notoriously bad at watching late night movies without falling asleep. Little did we know that despite starting this movie at around 2am he didn't even have time to think about sleep since the film was so nerve-wracking and stress-inducing.
This movie is exactly why I watch these god awful anime movies. 101 minutes. 10 minutes of fluff at the beginning. 20 minutes of fluff+credits at the ending. And then in the middle, a single 70 minute long over the top fight that is Earth-shattering and universe expanding with an animation that go blip bloup blam and make my monkey brain go like "MOVING PICTURES! MOVING PICTURES!
Willem Dafoe? More like Willem Dafavourite because he's the best part of this movie by far even though the rest of the movie is pretty Willem Dafantastic. It really captured how lowlives actually think in the streets through characters such as Willem Dafunny-man. It also showed how traumatic experiences can easily turn someone into an enlightened that could do anything in the name of Willem Dafaith.
The movie does have some lackluster moments like Willem Dafinale that has a useless plot twist.
Nonetheless, it is a Willem Dafine movie that earns itself a Willem Dafour stars. Recommended.
