Crows Zero II
Rivalling teengangs are giving their best to kill each other in this over the top action flick by enfant terrible Takashi MIIKE. The director of AUDITION delivers us too many climaxes, too much testosteron, too much violence and 27 minutes of nonstop fighting
About the director: Takashi MIIKe, born in 1960 in Osaka, began his film career working as an assistant director for (among others) Shoei IMAMURA. He is the hyperactive workaholic of the Japanese film. In 1999 he produced the acupuncture shocker AUDITION. Since then he has made up to seven movies a year.
