This film's also known as "Killers on Parade." It addresses societal issues in broad terms, mixing critiques of corporate corruption and cultural decay. Each of the hired killers seems to symbolize some problematic element of society, sometimes far too obviously. The first time I saw one hit man running around the city dressed like a US football player I laughed, but like the movie, over time it became less amusing.
