not for the faint hearted. But if you love asian cinema!

Prolific director Takashi Miike (AUDITION) keeps finding new ways to test the boundaries of on-screen violence. ICHI THE KILLER is a masterful piece of filmmaking, simultaneously funny and horrific, but it's only for viewers with strong stomachs. One character, Kakihara (Japanese indie film heartthrob Tadanobu Asano), a masochistic yakuza lieutenant, has slits in his cheeks through which he blows cigarette smoke and gleefully hacks off his own tongue to apologize for his impudence. Then there's eponymous assassin (Nao Omori), a painfully shy but sadistic young voyeur who wears a leather superhero outfit to work. Manipulated by the cagey and mysterious Jijii (English translation: 'Gramps' Shinya Tsukamoto), Ichi lashes out and massacres those Jijii deems bullies, and basically anyone else who upsets his frail psyche. Jijii uses the demented lad to start a bloody war between rival yakuza factions. Miike's film is full of grotesquely over-the-top violent set pieces, including flying entrails, graphic mutilations, and even a severed human face splattered against a wall and slowly sliding to the ground. It's all captured with kinetic camerawork and hyperactive editing. It's not for everyone, but bolder viewers will find it uniquely entertaining.

Good price for a good movie (very gory)
The americans get the uncut version and yet again we get the censored one,

If you don't have Prime or don't want to spend over £15, then this would be cheaper at BlahDVD/101CD, Base.com and Play.com - plus you'd get Quidco from them.

Just an alternative! :)

You can sign up for 1 month free trial of prime. Mine ends on 30th. been taking advantage of it myself. i'll cancel 29th.

You may not want prime but it is free for a month so may as well. :?

It's not available to everybody though - it's kind of "invite only" and a bit random whether you get it or not. :)

Great film and a great price for it, thanks :thumbsup:

I should mention that this is the heavily cut UK version (cut by 3 mins) which removes material to do with sexual assault. Personally, I find it a bonus that that's gone.
#8
Good film this but anyone seen MachineGun Girl? Crazy movie!
#9
What about Tetsou, and the sequel Tetsou Iron man! MENTAL!!!
#10
This is a strange strange film but certainly one to experience.
#11
This film is a bit disgusting to be honest.

Takashi Miike just puts things in his film for shock value really, as per Audition, but if you want it then I suppose the price is right.
#12
Just worth noting that this DVD is on pre-order for some reason or another with a release date of 20/10/08 !!
#13
Skankazoid!!

i think thats because the source material is so violent. i read the manga first and was very disappointed with the film. but i reckon that happens with evrything , the film is always weaker because it so short and lacks depth.
the film is really very sedate compared to the manga and the villain of the film is pathetic compared to the one in the manga.

Tokyo Thugs Nostalgia was pretty enjoyable from Miike

i like gory movies but this was one of the most stupid, pathetic and cheesy movies i have ever seen....i won't even buy it for 1p lol
#18
Brilliant film, but not for the faint hearted. As another poster said, get the Dutch or the US version to view the film as the director intended it :thumbsup:

Gruesome flick and not for the faint hearted. Probably on pre-order due to BBFC going through and deleting scenes....:whistling:
