Nathan Stuart’s review published on Letterboxd:
Shinkai returns and this time around his travels take him to a fishing village under siege by dynamite loving pirates. Along the way he seduces women ('lets play the octopus sucking game'), exposes fake religions and destroys more eyeballs while also dealing with the repercussions of a man he killed previously.
Not as confidently shot, or as action heavy as the second film but Tomisaburo Wakayama's sprited performance still makes it essential viewing. Not quite as good overall as the second but still way better than the first film, this is a solid series so far.
