A corporate drone goes mad and spirals into psychopathy, violently lashing out at society.

An absolutely mandatory film. As heavy-handed as its anti-corporatism is, it has fantastic subtleties requiring multiple viewings. There are very few movies which can achieve this level of watchability. This is absolutely an A-class dudebro movie.

to be re-watched

A surprisingly cool plot. Snazzy music and interesting accents on the dubbing. Features fights with a white fan (folded and out), a good multi swordfight, bench-foo and skirt-foo.

  • FIXME - My DVD skips at a cool bench-foo fight. Crap!

Completely tongue-in-cheek.. zaney or something.

There are a whole lot of "what the fuck?!" moments. Actually, there are entire scenes of it. Be sure to drop some recreational pharmacuticals, or at least drink a hell of a lot before, while and after watching this. Good lord. No, there is no god.. only Zuul.

80's-mode fullscreen.

Note to self: My DVD skipped 29 minutes in. Oh well.
