Dead or Alive
Directed by Takashi Miike
Tough gangster Ryuichi (Riki Takeuchi) and his ethnically Chinese gang make a play to take over the drug trade in Tokyo's Shinjuku district by massacring the competition. But he meets his match in detective Jojima (Show Aikawa), who will do everything to stop them. Contains strong language, violence and gore.
A yakuza and a cop each wage their own Takashi Miike-styled war against the Japanese mafia.
Cast: Shô Aikawa, Riki Takeuchi, Renji Ishibashi
Sandwiched between some of the most memorable and unique opening and closing moments in cinema is a fairly standard yakuza flick. Hasn't aged well.
First off, 5 skulls for sure! wow. second of all, wait, what? No seriously, what just happened?
Speechless. The ending is amazing! ti
ROFLMAO! I have to admit, I did not see that ending coming
