When a bomber, a patricide, a mad biker and a pornographer, together with various other forms of social detritus, break free from jail, it is not surprising that mayhem follows in their wake. What is surprising is the degree of sympathy that brilliant young director Toshiaki Toyoda elicits with elegant ease from the spectator, as the gang of misfits roams the land in a despair that is the crueller for being comic. This is humanity on the run to nowhere. Although originally inspired by 'The Great Escape', the film has more of a feel of 'Les Miserables' mixed with a hallucinogenic, then cut with speed. A truly original addition to the jailbreak genre!
