Matthew M (ca) wrote: A movie with great acting. It is a well made courtroom drama with an interesting story. I felt the beginning had much more humor but after James Woods' character began to come back to hi sold self he realized how important this case was. James Woods was great in the movie and it is pretty much his character going through the story and trying hard to win the case. Robert Downey Junior is his assistant and there are also some other notable actors in the film. It is a great courtroom drama and has a nice style in presenting the story.

Joseph B (it) wrote: The Nikkatsu Company conceived "Branded to Kill" to be a low budget hitman film, a subgenre of the popular Yakuza films. What Nikkatsu got was a stylish Japanese New Wave picture where Seijun Suzuki lost his job for making "movies that make no sense and no money." Many things can be seen to have inspired Suzuki, among them film noir and the James Bond movies. "Branded to Kill" is at times surrealistic, absurdism and even avant-garde. "Branded to Kill" has gone on to influence several directors such as Jim Jarmusch, John Woo, and Quentin Tarantino and has since held a status of cult film.The story is about a hitman who isn't even number 1 or number 2, but considered number 3. He loves the smell of steamed white rice, and it arouses him. Suzuki has said this was an attempt to make the killer "quintessentially Japanese" and added that if he were Italian "he would be turned on by macaroni, right?" The film opens with Hanada (Joe Shishido) and his wife Mami Hanada (Mariko Ogawa) getting into a taxicab being driven by another hitman named Kasuga (Hiroshi Minami) who isn't ranked because he started drinking to control his shakes and anxiety. Kasuga has a job offer for a hit and asks Hanada for his help. Ksauga is killed but Hanada completes the job and meets beautiful femme fatale Misako Nakajo (Annu Mari). Misako needs help with a job, she needs Hanada to kill a man she will be with on the street. He only has a three second window to shoot him through the heart. During the hit, a butterfly obstructs his view and he shoots an old lady accidentily.Now that he has botched a hit, the organization demand his wife kill him, when she fails, he ends up being taken care of by Misako, who is also trying to kill him, and he's trying to kill her but won't because he wants to sleep with her. The organization sends number 1 after him and this starts Hanada's mental anguish and sleep deprivation.Hanada is an anti-hero with puffy cheeks who is considered the best at his job, yet he's only ranked number three. Mikaso, the femme fatale is death, she speaks of only death, she kills, she wants to die and surrounds herself with death. Their relationship seems based on distrust and sexual desire.One reason this film may seem so fresh, even after nearly 50 years, is because the original script was unsatisfactory and Nikkatsu hired Suzuki to rewrite it and when he started shooting the film he had no script. Suzuki would think up scenes the day of or night before and it really pays off well in making a great, sometimes challenging, fragmented film that is very stylish and artistic.

Carlos M (ru) wrote: A mildly entertaining Western with funny moments, but the movie's problem lies in a frustrating, illogical revelation that takes place during the third act, something that doesn't make much sense and unfortunately ruins the entire coherence of the story.
