| Best of the trilogy
Two hit men (Riki Takeuchi and Sho Aikawa) cross paths while pulling off a job. They decide to run a playground and reminisce about their shared childhood. Quite a bit lighter in tone than the original "Dead or Alive" which the sequel has (apart from the same two lead actors) nothing in common with. When I say 'lighter in tone', I of course mean for a Takashi Miike film. This movie is more about the wonders and joys of children growing up, not yet jaded by how the world really is. Fans of Miike's bizarreness won't be disappointed with it either. I myself like this film more then the first one and is superbly acted.

My Grade: B+

DVD Extras: Theatrical Trailer; and Trailers for "Dead or Alive" "Dead or Alive Final", "Sharkskin and Peach Hip Girl" and "Junk Food"
