Are you enjoying life?

Kiba is currently handling two jobs at one time. He is serving as a normal bodyguard for a woman on a mission to uncover the mysterious death of her parents and he is also protecting a company from attacking rivals. While the two jobs seem like harmless missions, Kiba somehow finds himself under attack by random gangs and martial arts experts.

?The end of one?s life comes without warning.?

Takashi Miike, director of Audition, Ichi the Killer, Sabu, Visitor Q, Agitator, Graveyard of Honor, and the Dead or Alive trilogy, delivers Bodyguard Kiba 2. The storyline for this picture is a bit all over the place and lacks consistency. The action scenes were solid and the shootouts were entertaining. The acting was better than average but nothing special.

?Don?t think you can treat me like that because my mother was a whore.?

Takashi Miike is a very inconsistent director who jumps back and forth between sheer masterpiece and utter nonsense. Let?s just say that if it wasn?t for the action scenes, this would be a zero or one. The storyline for this picture in nonexistent. There is also no gore in this picture. What separates Miike from other directors is his amazing ability to depict gore in any genre of movie. Overall, this is worth skipping?even for huge Miike fans.

?Whatever you bind on Earth you bind in heaven.?

Grade: D+
