Riki-Oh: The Story of Ricky

Or as I like to call it, an exercise in badass levels of outrageous excess. A martial movie that is practically a video game, with different levels, bad guys to fight, and of course the big boss at the end. As you can see, there’s even head smashing involved, and the movie even throws in a small amount of communism with the workers rising up against their corrupt capitalistic masters. My favorite thing about this film is how unflinchingly brutal and honest it is, not to mention its high entertainment value. That’s one of the great things about cinema: film allows you to travel to places you only hear or read about.
