This movie is a not good by just about any measure you can imagine, and is probably the worst thing from Miike I've ever seen.
However, this scene was undeniably awesome
Unlike any other vg movie ever made to this day this was actually fun to watch. It's quite loyal to the games, it's just not that loyal to the main story.
You also forgot the scene of Majima beating a guy for spiting on the streets, right after Majima killed a bunch of people right there.
Yeah, but where it's not loyal to the story they filled it with pointless side plots, like the bank robbery and the two teenage idiots in love. Also, if I hadn't played games I would have had no clue what was going on, since they don't even bother to set up the main plot properly.
However, the fight scenes and little touches like this kept it from being a complete disappointment. I just wish there was more of it. Oh, and the guy who played Kiryu was too pretty for the part.
Sadly Japan doesn't produce many tough looking actors these days. Had this been made in the 70s and you could had picked from a dozen of actors for the role of Kiryu. On the other hand, the rest of the cast was quite good. I also didn't mind that they didn't give any background whatsoever, the multiple-stories approach was not a bad idea, the bonnie and clyde kids was certainly annoying, but the bank robbers were fun.
I like how Miike gave the yellow emperor a penis nose.
