Movie Info

On the surface, Riki Fudoh (Shôsuke Tanihara) appears to be a normal high school student. However, Fudoh is anything but average -- he's the disturbed son of a Yakuza mobster (Toru Minegishi) and is prone to acts of spectacular violence, just like his father. However, there's no love lost between the two. Fudoh, backed by his equally vicious gang of teen assassins, wants revenge for a murder committed 10 years earlier by his father. The school becomes a battleground for the family.

Audience Reviews for Fudoh: The New Generation

    Crazy, but not at Miike's finest. Worth a watch.

    Takashi Miike is a mixed bag of a director. There are some films that come across as brilliant and others that are just so-so. <i>Fudoh: The New Generation</i> is one that falls into the latter category.<p>There isn't much depth to the story, as it is basically assassination after assassination in a Yakuza themed film. Of course Miike tends to spice it up with the usual unique characters, bloody violence, nudity, sex, and strong language. This will come across as entertaining, however there are times when it is just unnecessary. It is almost like overbuilding certain aspects of the film.</p><p>The violence is a plenty and bloody. I mean, there are young kids and school girls performing kills in this picture. Seems like the typical gangster thugs aren't enough.</p><p>The nudity and sex is a bit much at times. One of Fudoh's right hand gals shoots darts from her lower lips. Yeah, that's right. There are also times where it seems that this is on the verge of wanting to turn into a soft core porn.</p><p>The acting is over the top and it matches with Miike's characters. Shosuke Tanihara is a little disappointing as Fudoh, but the beautiful schoolgirls in Tamaki Kenmochi and Miho Nomoto are there to take your eyes off of him. Riki Takeuchi is good, even though his character suffers from too little airtime, and Kenji Takano looks like he doesn't belong.</p><p><i>Fudoh: The New Generation</i> will excite some and freak out others. Feel free to take a chance on this one.

    The first Miike film I saw and boy was my ass kicked. This and Battle Royale are what got me in to Japanese films when I started getting tired of North American flicks. An incredible yakuza/exploitation classic.

    Miike has done way better, aside from some fun scenes it doesn't go too far. Even something like City of Lost Souls is more solid. Also, the ending of this is just a damn slap in the face. Rikki Takeuchi should have been used more.
