Ichi the Killer Review
Written by: Googopqp
This movie is very weird and pretty hard to understand, I'm not going to lie I didn't fully understand this movie I just got a generaly idea of what is happening. But don't get me wrong this movie is weird but awesome and the bad guy, not Ichi, with the cuts in his cheeks is bad ass and has one of the sickest, to some (not me :P), torture scenes in film, he ties a guy up naked with hooks all through his skin and he is hanging there and it looks fake but soooooo painfull and then he sticks these needles into his mouth and pours hot oil on the guys helpless back........ouch...painfull!
Anyways this movie is about a killer, named Ichi, who had a tromatic experience when he was younger involving women and now he is brainwashed into thinking he was bullied and whenever he sees a girl getting beat he masturbates and cries, whenever he kills someone he cries and he is a big cry baby. This is very weird and the whole movie is subtitled so its hard to know whats going on. But anyways he kills and cries and he gets this Yakuza gang, or whatever, mad and they want to kill Ichi. Their boss was killed or went missing, or something, and they need to find them and Ichi is in the way. So as they look for Ichi he is told by his weird little friend who turns out to be freakin huge and muscular to kill these people on his list.
This is just my kind of idea of the movie, there is more to it and whole backgrouds but as I said it is a very weird movie and hard to explain. It is an asian film and it is directed by Takashi Miike who directed Audition so you know the torture is going to be high end. But this movie is pretty cartoony which makes sense because it is based off a manga comic book , or whatever they are called. Anime comic? idk....Anyways this movie is good and very weird, but some of the music is kewl in it too.
Now lets get to the gore and the opening scene. The gore is pretty fake looking and the blood is orangey but that isn't a problem because it is very gory and very kewl death and kills in it. This movie is actually extremely gory and some of it is just so unrealistic but awesome, and there is litterally someones face sliding down a wall and people being split in half and all that stuff in between. But then the opening scene. Warning::::This may offend some people!!!:::::: The opening is of a man beating a prostitute very mercilessly, like worse than Rhinna, srry too soon? and he is just beating her and beating her almost for no reason and there is a man outside masturbating to it and he cums into a plant and the credits rise out of his cum. I KNOW this is soooooooooooooo messed up, the beginning is sick and weird, and so original. Speaking of original, this movie is very very original :D
So check this out if you like asian weird films that are ultra gory and very adult, this is not a childrens movie and shouldn't be viewed by children, like me :D.....But check this out if you like this type of movie. 7/10!!!!
