Blood, gore, severed heads, but a tender love story at heart. Takashi Miike is back! One night in Tokyo. Leo (Masataka Kubota), a young boxer down on his luck, meets his 'first love' Monica (Sakurako Konishi), a callgirl and an addict, but still an innocent. Unwittingly caught up in a drug-smuggling scheme, Leo and Monica find themselves pursued through the night by a corrupt cop, a yakuza, his nemesis, and a female assassin hired by the Chinese Triads. Prepare for unadulterated mayhem and carnage and fall for 'First Love'.
Thoroughly enjoyed this movie. Enough twists and turns to stimulate interest and a couple LOL moments. Was not keen on Blade of the Immortal, but this one pressed all my buttons. Reminded me a bit of the original Equalizer due to the setting of the climax, but a really well thought out, acted and filmed movie which I highly recommend.
