  1. Emma Ikikeiram's rating of the film Ichi the Killer

    Absurd, violent and penetrating - I can still here the screech of the knife going over the glass table.

  2. aurkihnowe's rating of the film Ichi the Killer

    saw this a few times during my Miike phase, and it still doesn't quite add up (even after paging through the equally disturbing manga it's based on)...the plot, i guess, involves a cop who has programmed an abused cipher to become an automatic killing machine, and the scenes of horror veer from comically cheesy to garishly grotesque...would i watch it again? grown out of horror, mostly, but it's still just a movie...

  4. David Zimmerman's rating of the film Ichi the Killer

  5. Richmond Hill's rating of the film Ichi the Killer

    There's an unmistakable gaudy élan to the film but the level of painful detail depicted serves little purpose other than to create the rawest of sensations - to what end? In a sense a logical extension - perhaps more truthful given it doesn't flinch - of the current trend for pulpy cartoons which negate true horror for slam-dunk fibs, but skill aside, it's not a film to revisit however one tries to rationalise it.

  6. Miguel Plante's rating of the film Ichi the Killer

    Takashi Miike signe ici une excellente intrigue psychologique, truffée de scènes de tortures horribles, mais jamais tout à fait gratuites. Très choquant, mais pertinent et purement jouissif. Certains choix esthétiques peuvent être discutables, mais l'ambiance générale est malsaine à souhait. Ichi the Killer est un bonbon de couleur rouge.

  7. Paolo Utili's rating of the film Ichi the Killer

  8. Bob's rating of the film Ichi the Killer

    It's hard to imagine that a movie so sadistic and deranged as this one, could have coherent plot that flows so smoothly between torture porn and crime thriller. But it does, from the opening scene to the grand finale in which previous events are just tools to achieve something greater than controversy. Tadanobu Asano's disturbing performance turns all your villains into heroes, which consumes even this film.

  9. Aaron C Jones's rating of the film Ichi the Killer

    Yes, the effects are laughably bad at times (especially when the guy gets chopped in half), but what this film sets out to achieve and what it actually achieves are just straight up 5 stars. Barbarically beautiful.

  16. Zane DeLong's rating of the film Ichi the Killer

    The exuberant cruelty in this film wears me down to the point I just want it to be over by the time it hits its final act... but it keeps going. It demonstrates, through violence, people who are desperate to connect to others but cannot. The final act seems to promise an explosive, gory climax, but instead fizzles into sadness. It's frustrating and beautiful.

  24. Thomas Dods's rating of the film Ichi the Killer

    Totally barmy Japanese action film with a large helping of ultra-violence. Not completely sure of the point of it all but is a pretty exhilarating watch.
