    I've seen three or four other movies by Miike, and I can tell you that he's one of the most exciting, versatile directors working today.
  2. Takashi is a master of the jagged quick cut and the shocker finish, and his head-spinning story is pumped up with almost more bravado than a single screen can handle.

    Everything about Takashi Miike's brilliant and blood-soaked crime thriller comes as a shock.

    It's marvelous or unwatchable.
  5. This is no-holds-barred filmmaking. Some viewers will find it disgusting. Others will call the director's bluff.

    Not for the squeamish (a guy rips out his own arm, for goodness' sake), the film is nevertheless more than just a gonzo gross-out. But not by much.
  7. 20
    A soulless compilation of thrills.
