It's worth it just to see the ending. Not as good as the first two, but still good. I liked this one better than the 2nd one, but the 1st one is the best. The ending is wonderful. I love the huge twist in it. Great science fiction elements. I counted 4 languages spoken in total in this movie: English, Japanese, Cantonese, and Mandarin. Interesting. Strange that the characters are totally unphased by speaking in totally different languages to each other. They can just carry on a conversation. Bizarre and interesting. Seems to be a crazy sort of futuristic world with a Half-Life 2 style government that bans procreation.
1st one is the best of the 3. 2nd was a mess. 3rd was stupid.3rd one was better than 2nd.I am glad i got that of my chest.
Not nearly as good as the first two, almost as crazy as the first, and overall just okay.
Eh, some okay moments (namely the ending) but ultimately not a highlight in Miike's career.
Tried to give this no stars. What an awful waste of time. The first one was excellent, the sequel was different, but unfulfilling, this one.......well, AVOID IT at all costs!!
