    Fantastic movie that deals with the inevitable fate of the yakuza gangsters and the boredom of crime while also flipping to a genuine prankster hangout movie in the idyllic beach house setting. Flipping to a business setting of hits that seem so mundane and boring to a hang out movie that is borne out of said boredom is just such a awesome structure, a fantastic vibes film for half of it that just ends in completely and utter depression; living…

    Dennis Rodman changing different hair colours every scene, JCVD disguising himself in a cross between Basquait and the lead singer of the cure, dodging bullets by doing cartwheels and front flips, spin kicking two people tripping over coke cans, training lifting bathtubs, investigating democratic speeches, monks running computer servers and then the finale. The finale includes:

    - Mickey Rourke oiled up
    - A baby in the middle surrounded by crosses posing as mines
    - A tiger chasing the leads

    ALL in the roman coliseum. You could say that Tsui Hark is a visionary.
