#fuckyeahladyofvengeance! praiseworthy how she unfailingly hits the best arteries to urge blood geyser out in feral oil gushers. wonder if that's a visual trope in J-film, remember seeing such blowouts in anime. otherwise highly implausible & explosive flick o' neat underwater sprees. now pack yer duds before the possessed+undead Poseidon's lassie & storm wielding Ningyo skewers yer eyeballs on her one-prong trident!
Political issues are single-handedly battled out by an vengeful badass woman in a rural town. And there will be blood! This movie is so impressing, filled with rage, believable characters, and stunning beauty. Might be the best vengeance film ever.
Now that's a kill crazy rampage... Starts off all Yamada then goes all Wakamatsu and then finishes up all splattered on the floor. Wasn't expecting that. It might be held in higher regard if it hadn't resorted to all the bloodletting, but it's still a beautiful and sad movie.
