When a Yakuza boss named Anjo disappears with 300 million yen, his chief henchman, a sadomasochistic man named Kakihara, and the rest of his mob goons go looking for him. After capturing and torturing a rival Yakuza member looking for answers, they soon realize they have the wrong man and begin looking for the man named Jijii who tipped them off in the first place. Soon enough Kakihara and his men encounter Ichi, a psychotic, sexually-repressed young man with amazing martial arts abilities and blades that come out of his shoes. One by one Ichi takes out members of the Yakuza and all the while Kakihara intensifies his pursuit of Ichi and Ichi’s controller Jijii.

Ichi the Killer Movie Reviews

Excellent mix of sadistic violence and humour.

Takashi Miike’s “Ichi the Killer” is a masterpiece of insane cinema.This film is surely challenging-filled with enough sadistic violence and rape to satisfy fans of Japanese harrowing cinema.It’s based on the popular manga by Hideo Yamamoto.The character of Ichi is truly amazing-he is a mysterious figure who slices various individuals into numerous bloody pieces with razor sharp blades strapped to his boots.The gore is pretty extreme as Ichi literally slices people in half with his razor-sharp boots.The acting is surprisingly good-Nao Omori and Tadanobu Asano are impressive as Ichi and Kakihara.Highly recommended,especially if you have strong stomach.9 out of 10.

Violent art

One of the most notorious films of recent years, this piece of Japanese insanity is from the man who brought us AUDITION, Takashi Miike. But while AUDITION was a slow-paced psychological thriller with an unforgettable climax, from the very start ICHI THE KILLER makes for disturbing viewing. This is violence at its nastiest and most sadistic; the characters have little or no redeeming qualities and only the strongest of stomachs are advised to watch. The BBFC cut out close to five minutes of sexual violence for this film’s UK release and for once, I’m glad; violence against men is one thing, but this kind of stuff against women? No thanks.

Anyway, the film is very well made indeed, that’s undeniable. Miike’s camera-work is kinetic and fluid, investing the whole film with a kind of jumpy drug-fuelled excitement. The acting is also of a high calibre, particularly Tadanobu Asano’s torturer, Kakihara. It’s his film more than it is Ichi’s, and he really shines. That’s not to say the other actors aren’t also very good in all of their different roles, because they are.

Of course, this film is slimly plotted and for the most part it’s a series of violent scenes, ranging from torture (with hooks and boiling water) to people mutilating themselves, massacres, and much, much more. I enjoyed the way the various plot threads come together as the story progresses, and there’s a weird climax that’ll leave you scratching your head wondering what just happened. The black humour, spread liberally throughout, also makes things that bit easier to bear. ICHI THE KILLER is a unique and highly original film, a piece of violent art, and horror fans will no doubt enjoy the on-screen carnage. Me, I liked it, but it’s not something I think I could sit through a second time.

Messy Explicit Violence

When the Yakuza boss Anjo disappears with e fortune of his gang, his sadomasochist number one and lover Kakihara (Tadanobu Asano) and his men search for him. The mysterious Jiji (Shinya Tsukamoto) arrives in their office and accuses the rival Yakuza Suzuki (Sabu) of abducting Anjo, and Kakihara tortures him trying to locate the boss. When Kakihara realizes that he has committed a mistake, he pays with his tongue to the Yakuza and sooner he finds that the responsible is the psychopath and mentally deficient Ichi, who was abused in his childhood and is sexually repressed, and is controlled by Jiji using his skills in martial arts and blades to eliminate the gangsters.

“Koroshiya 1” is another gore and twisted movie of Takashi Miike, where most of the characters are bizarre and practically all the stylish scenes disclose tortures, perversion and explicit violence. I know his style, therefore there is no surprise for me in what I have just seen; however, unfortunately this movie has a messy screenplay. I did not find the motives for the procedure of Jiji and I did not understand the last scene. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): “Ichi, O Assassino” (“Ichi, The Killer”)
