  1. Gabriele Mariotti's rating of the film Boiling Point

    it was nice up until Takeshi showed up...

  2. Rocketeam's rating of the film Boiling Point

    It's not a Takeshi film without some Yakuza having fun at the beach.

  3. Alvise Narduzzi's rating of the film Boiling Point

    Il film è veramente interessante per la prima metà abbondante, quando si parla di baseball e della faccia di Kitano non c'è neanche l'ombra, però l'entrata in scena del regista coincide, ahimè, con un drastico calo di qualità. La storia diventa piatta e prevedibile, lasciando nella positività solo la regia, con la quale Kitano mantiene i suoi standard, realizzando delle inquadrature d'oro.

  4. Samuel Righi's rating of the film Boiling Point

  5. Matthew Martens's rating of the film Boiling Point

    Genius, although exactly how and why is slipping away from me already.

  6. Pedderrs's rating of the film Boiling Point

    Yazuka criminals are causing havoc once again in another quirky offering from Takeshi Kitano. The director's unmistakable style of combining visceral brutality with off-beat humour is felt throughout Boiling Point, which creates for some unforgettable scenes and memorable characters. An entertaining film with Kitano at his most menacing, but it lacks the heart of Hana-bi and introspective qualities of Sonatine.

  7. Jeremiah Johnson's rating of the film Boiling Point

    The way he frames the shots of violence is hilarious. I found myself laughing at scenes that weren't meant to be funny or were they.

  8. Fabio Osvaldo Carta's rating of the film Boiling Point

  9. Johnny Mislow's rating of the film Boiling Point

    I can't understand why this movie is so underrated. Completely deserved in the sense of the director being able to define his style only already in his second movie. And with such a performance from every actor, besides Takeshi himself, makes this even better. Wish it would lasted at least two hours just to be able to appreciate the colour, the expressions and the landscapes.

  10. Nick Schwab's rating of the film Boiling Point

    It may be more original than his debut, Violent Cop, yet Boiling Point is a case of too many emotional tones at work. Sometimes a bleak crime picture, other times a hilarious film about maturing into masculinity, the narrative just isn't focused. The many clumsy detours in story/plot are also not fine-tuned. Therefore, it's an unfocused match of conflicting storylines that feel aimless, rather than well assembled.

  11. Arf's rating of the film Boiling Point

  12. Checkpoint Charlie's rating of the film Boiling Point

    A lot of people complain about how evil Beat Takeshi made his character in this...I WANT TO SEE THIS SADISTIC SON-OF-A-BITCH!!!!

  13. Mister Dob's rating of the film Boiling Point

  14. Jeremy Ashlyn's rating of the film Boiling Point

  15. Ouibonjour's rating of the film Boiling Point

    I give this a 3 because any time takeshi wasn't on the screen i felt cheated.

  16. nrh's rating of the film Boiling Point

    Masterpiece of cause/effect editing patterns and precise compositions, one of the best films ever made about what it feels like to be punched in the face and what it feels like to do the hitting, and how fragile the line between sometimes is. Sometimes reminds of Tati, sometimes of Jerry Lewis. Does any other director get so much pleasure from filming himself being shot to death?

  17. Tommaso's rating of the film Boiling Point

    strongly underrated, one of takeshi's best flick.

  18. Hikaru's rating of the film Boiling Point

    Takeshi's keen sense for off screen space, sound off effects, and off beat humor is already evident in this sophomore feature. I love all the baseball scenes!

  19. Dean Fernando's rating of the film Boiling Point

    Beat Takeshi at his ice cold best...
