Kitano invades LA – almost succeeds
This is the 4th Kitano film I’ve seen recently. It has most of the characteristics of the other films – the sudden, shocking violence, the impassive silences, the same supporting actors, the obligatory seaside scene. But the shift to an American location weakens it, despite the excellent contributions of the US actors, especially Omar Epps.

But the core, unmissable qualities of a Kitano film remain. Takeshi Kitano must be the natural successor to Clint Eastwood as an anti-hero. Most of the stylised violence takes place off-screen, with a flash of humour, then the after-effects vividly on display. The sound-track from Joe Hisaishi matches the screen action perfectly, at times an aggressive supplement to the violence, at other times hauntingly peaceful.

The ending is the film’s weakest part, as though Kitano pandered to imagined (or real) American requirements. The out-of-town setting and road movie elements fit uncomfortably with the rest of the film. But if this is the compromise needed to get Kitano to make more films out of Japan, it must be worthwhile.

Hard to keep track of all the deaths and bloodshed!
Wow. According to IMDb, the body count in this film is a whopping 78! Had I known this ahead of time, I probably wouldn’t have watched this film. I am usually turned off by overly violent films, as too often there isn’t much of a story and it’s just an excuse for gross-out special effects that appeal to our lowest instincts. So did the film win me over or was it just another blood-fest? Well, it did impress me–that’s for sure.

Takeshi Kitano (also known as Beat Takeshi) wrote, directed and starred in this film. It begins in Japan and two rival yakuza clans are at war with each other. Eventually, to end the conflict, the surviving members of one clan officially join the other–all but one hard guy (Kitano). Instead of killing him, however, they send him overseas–to an exile, of sorts.

Kitano arrives in America to stay with his younger half-brother. However, the younger guy is a punk drug dealer hanging with low-lifes–not a yakuza big-wig like Kitano. One of the younger half-brother’s friends (Omar Epps) meets Kitano–and the meeting is very memorable! In fact, EVERYTHING about his dealings with Kitano turn out to be memorable. Kitano soon decides to take out the half-brother’s enemies and starts a gang war with the Mexican gangs thanks to his crazy macho ways–and Kitano seems not the least bit concerned during all this as his face is quite deadpan and cold throughout. After all, in his mind, if people hurt you, just kill them…as well as their friends. He is truly a scary guy here! And, a scary get bent on taking over everything. At least it’s nice to see a man with ambition! Following Takeshi’s example, his small band of punks quickly grows. And, so does their ambition and love of violence. Among all this is a weird suicide scene (in fact, there was another really weird one later). I guess it makes sense, in a way…but man is it weird. And so the body count rises…very quickly. And the younger half-brother soon sees himself as a really, really bad guy–and it’s easy to see that he and his friends are setting themselves up to fall.

After seeing this film, I noticed it bore some resemblance to an earlier Kitano film–“Sonatine”. Both have very similar themes, a similar deadpan performance by Kitano and feature some oddly surreal scenes of mobsters at work and play. And, both have ENORMOUS body counts. While good films and I certainly could respect how they were crafted, they also were both pretty unpleasant viewing and I can’t imagine watching more of these! Well made but yuck! By the way, it was nice to see James Shigeta in this film. He was once a very popular actor but hasn’t been as active in recent years. Also, during the course of all the killing, did you notice that NEVER did any police respond to any of the gunfire?! Maybe it’s just too common an occurrence in LA…or the film just forgot about this.
