Dead Or Alive 2: Birds Movie Review

Never mind that the whole of Japan (and possibly the world) was destroyed at the end of Dead or Alive, the stars are back for more bloodshed and willful destruction of property in the continuation of Takashi Miike's Japanese blood feud saga. In truth, the film shares little with its predecessor aside from the two stars, involving one gangster who tries to track down an enemy assassin, only to discover he's an old friend from his youth. DOA2 is a bit more cartoony and much less violent/gory/perverted than the original, but Miike's touch is still unmistakable.

Aka Dead or Alive 2: Tôbôsha.
