Kill Bill meets J-Popculture
This movie is not logical. This movie is not challenging your intellect. This movie does not want you to think too much about it. This movie gives you exactly what the title offers, nothing more.
I think it "borrowed" a lot from Kill Bill, for example certain fighting moves or villain character traits. (Actually, my first thought was Tarantino had seen this movie and decided to make a western, a little more serious version. Then I noticed this was the more recent production.) The story seems a little similar too. I'm not saying that there IS much of a story here. In fact, I expected the story to be nonsense, but not to be that incomplete. Still, it was fun to watch, and had me constantly ask myself whether is was entertaining because it was so creative or just because of its plain stupidity.
It is one of those movies I'm not able to judge by the standards of "good" or "bad". If you like goth style and anime-like over-the-top action sequences, you will be entertained. (I was.) Just don't expect anything else.
