Great crime flick. A dash of old school yakuza, Infernal Affairs with cops on the take, and just a pinch of that old time Kitano/Miike ultraviolence. A new Asian gangster classic.
I'm all about this! Plays like a classic Japanese Yakuza film with some pretty gnarly scenes.
Really enjoyed it. Id recommend it
To those who compain this is mot a horror movie. For me a horror movie is what scares me. and creepy killer coming after your child is scary. I loved the suspense and found the reason behind the painting really creepy. I loved it.
