Good, but evil!
I was really stunned when I first saw this movie. It made me feel uncomfortable.
I like this movie.
Because it makes me think: What the director intends to convey, the significance of the imageries, the symbols, the allusions, Though it really, like others said, glorifies crime, almost all heroes are crowned because of killing. In some way, this movie satirizes the typical heroes, killing for their own interest, like some great emperors.
At the same time, I don't like this movie.
There are too many violent and bloody scenes. And some situations are absurdly exaggerated. How can a man, bare-handed, surrounded by police and guns, successfully escape?
