I'm also not sure if that was his last family movie. Anyways, I'm a bit picky with the Miike movies I end up watching, as he has directed over 70 movies since 1991 so a good percentage of those movies are just going to be crappy. I hear Andromedia is pretty terrible, therefore I've never bothered to watch it. Though I appreciate Miike's proficiency as a filmmaker, since he's pretty much made every movie under the sun and he's one of my favorite filmmakers because he's just not afraid to take risks and to push the boundaries, but he's also not afraid to do something that may seem to be out of his comfort zone. The point I'm trying to make is, that I think Miike is awesome and he's a wonderful man. Anyways on to this review. I enjoyed this movie quite a lot. Actually for the most part it was good (and on its way to being one of the weaker Miike movies I'd seen) until the last giant battle at the end, which actually a really cool scene. And that scene (since it felt so big and important) raised the score for me. I just liked the characters, while not the most complex characters (since there's a lot of them, not every one manages to stand out), they're all likeable in their own way (especially Ken, who's a goofy but funny character). I also really liked the dynamic of two rival factions fighting for control and a good percentage of the movie was spent with both factions trying to recruit more people to join, so it made the final battle that much more important. With this being a Miike film, it's certainly violent...actually it's a really violent and bloody movie. But when you take into consideration what this man has done in the past, this movie is TAME in comparison to his past work. Of course I understand why it wasn't as violent, since this is probably Miike's most mainstream work to date. But I'm not complaining, like I said, I appreciate Miike trying to widen his horizons a bit. But yea I really liked this movie, so much so that I'm actually looking forward to watching the sequel, whenever it's released over here. I don't expect the sequel to be great, but since it'll have a lot of the same characters it will make this movie easier to watch. But anyways I liked this movie, it's not perfect, it's a bit too long and sometimes the movie loses focus of the story it's trying to tell but likeable characters and an awesome battle scene at the end make this a very enjoyable movie for Miike fans and fans of the manga.
