It's the camera trickery and the playful art direction that send up the entire image of the badass yakuza to begin with.

A falta de coesão narrativa é mais do que compensada pelo visual marcante concebido por Suzuki, que cria uma fantasia psicodélica através da direção de arte estilizada, da fotografia com cores marcantes e da música-tema repetida continuamente.
| Original Score: 3/5
