Not exactly what I was expecting, but, I thoroughly enjoyed this film.

Not as good as the first, but still a lot of fun. This one was trying to be more serious and I felt that due to that, it missed the spark that the first one had. It does give a great back story though and is still quite goofy at parts.

Miike at peak Miike levels. Sincere in one breath, satirical in the next, then full-on exploitation. It knows what it is and has fun with it. Great watch.
