  4. ElTigreNegro's rating of the film Dead or Alive 2: Birds

    Another of Miike's very recurrent themes: nostalgia and childhood. The characters revisit their past to understan themselves better in the present. All shot with a dreamlike atmosphere, subtle and always paying attention to the characters. Many consider this one of Miike's best, and it's hard to argue against that. Aikawa and Takeuchi are in top form, not to mention Shinya Tsukamoto and Kenichi Endo.

  5. .'s rating of the film Dead or Alive 2: Birds

  6. Daniel S.'s rating of the film Dead or Alive 2: Birds

    If you survived DEAD OR ALIVE and Takashi Miike's bad taste, you may appreciate DEAD OR ALIVE 2: THE BIRDS and its melancholic and pastoral atmosphere. Or you may not. Because the last third of the film will remind you that the director knows how to offend the sensibility of the common viewer. It's a little bit vacuous at times but nevertheless interesting if you're a curious movie lover.

  7. Dead Dog and Ghost Man's rating of the film Dead or Alive 2: Birds

    The description is bullshit. There are diegetic implications that these are the reincarnated main characters from the first film.

  8. Hunter Duesing's rating of the film Dead or Alive 2: Birds

    A sequel that is far and away superior to its wishy-washy original. DEAD OR ALIVE 2: THE BIRDS is much more consistent, and delivers the Miike-fueled gore and humor, along with some actual drama as well.
