Ratings & Reviews

  1. FISCHER's rating of the film Dead or Alive

    Polar débridé, souvent mal maîtrisé, voire cafouilleux, qui cherche dans l'hyper-violence sa seule justification. Même l'humour au second degré ne sauve pas de tout... www.cinefiches.com

  2. Il secondo maestro del revolver's rating of the film Dead or Alive

    La C di capolavoro. Film immenso e delirante.

  3. Mr.Pacha's rating of the film Dead or Alive

    Gli volevo dare 2/5, ma con un finale così pazzesco se lo merita tutto 3/5

  4. Dominic Simard-Jean's rating of the film Dead or Alive

  5. Junda Mane's rating of the film Dead or Alive

    Features one of the most insane openings you will ever see in a film. Classic Yakuza exploitation from Miike.

  6. Ostermyers's rating of the film Dead or Alive

  7. dalena's rating of the film Dead or Alive

    I mean the beginning and the ending are the only reasons he made the movie. I'm glad I watched until the end because I had to backtrack and literally clap in laughter.

  8. Gondo's rating of the film Dead or Alive

    Every Takashi Miike film should have a big red warning sign at the beginning: Beware of the Miike! Entering at own risk!

  9. Tom JF's rating of the film Dead or Alive

    Granted, Dead or Alive's emphasis on perversion and body fluids often make this yakuza tale hard to watch. But by injecting a dose of insanity into the familiar Heat-like tale of mirror image cops and criminals (Sho and Riki) Miike is able to transcend genre limitations, creating instead a deranged study of both morality and a society driving full speed towards its own destruction.

  10. Easton Dubois's rating of the film Dead or Alive

    Good start, awesome end, obscenely tedious middle.

  11. NEONBEAR's rating of the film Dead or Alive

    the ending. that's some powerful shit.

  12. Mugino's rating of the film Dead or Alive

    Possibly THE weirdest, jaw-dropping ending ever possible in cinema.

  13. Hunter Duesing's rating of the film Dead or Alive

    This movie has an opening that will melt your face, burn your eyes, and leave you shaking in awe. It has an ending that will blow your mind all over the wall behind you, leaving an icky mess for someone to clean up. Everything in between is best described with the words "boring as fuck."

  14. Daniel S.'s rating of the film Dead or Alive

    The film doesn’t differ from most Japanese movies dedicated to yakuzas and anti-yakuzas police forces if one forgets Takashi Miike’s taste (superbad, I may say) for hyperviolence, gore, scatology and other candies. Recommended.
