I watched this film without reading the manga prior. I've watched some of Miike's ultraviolent movies before this but going in forward, i've not set any expections for this movie.
I'd like to mention the positive things first. I love Miike's violent movies. I think he's the best director for this genre, and there are a lot of em expecially in the first half of the movie. However, as the gods will watch black comedy moments seemed to shine the most in this film. I remembered laughing out loud in a few scenes in this movie and that's an impressive feat.
That's all the about the good stuff, unfortunately. The film was marred by a lot of terrible aspects.
One of them was the antagonist. I believe it's a bad casting overall. The antagonist was portrayed as edgy as the gods will watch the actor seemed to hate this role. It was obvious he tried too hard and it ended up being cringe thorughout the film. The absolute worst of this film is definitely the ending. It lead to more questions and plot holes, leaving all the viewers begging for answers. Let's just say it's the slimiest, hairiest balls that was shoved on your face.
You'll get me when you get there.
