This film is the prolific auteur, Takashi Miike, at his most fun and anarchic, a noir-tinged yakuza film blending genres in the story of a young boxer and a call girl, who fall passionately in love while getting innocently caught up in a drug-smuggling scheme over the course of one night in Tokyo.

Critics

“A first-rate cast, dynamic action, slapstick comedy and a cool animated sequence. Think Kill Bill meets Baby Driver as this carnage of chaos proves to be wildly entertaining.”

The Victoria Advocate

“Rich in components of fear, revenge, anger, and sweetness, Miike delivers a pure knockout in his latest film.”

Marisa Mirabal, Slashfilm

“it's way more entertaining than it should be.”

Michael O'sullivan, Washington Post
