  1. The movie is visually impressive, but Ishii's virtuoso style can't overcome the flatness of the comic-book story he's telling.

    Exceptionally satisfying and enormously entertaining.
  3. 30
    The emotional impact of Shark Skin Man is negligible.
  4. Its crazy non sequiturs and anything-goes performances do lend it a certain cult appeal.
  5. 50
    The non-linear plot makes for confusion and, except for the inspired final shootout, the action sequences are mediocre.

    Falls into the clotheshorse cliché: all dressed up and no place to go.
