Comments

A little tame for my tastes *SPOILER WARNING**SPOILER WARNING*I always enjoy violence in the films I watch.There's no doubt this movie has a lot of blood and guts.But it's so over the top absurd it didn't feel grotesque to me.When people get slashed in the throat by Ichi and his killer feet, they gush blood like they are in a Monty Python movie. Guys hang from the ceiling with fish hooks but it just seemed cartoonish rather than shocking.Not saying that cartoonish violence is a bad thing, mind you. It just seemed more goofy than disgusting. All in all though I had a good time watching it.I'm perplexed by the ending however.I'm not sure what the outcome of the big fight was. It left me scratching my head.
