I'm reviewing the entire Battles Without Honor And Humanity series 1-5 because I'm too fat and lazy to do them individually. Every one of these movies has the same concept: situations, meetings, yelling, bloodshed killings, every time a Yakuza leader dies they post it on screen, newspapers clippings, weird incomprehensible anticlimactic endings (well sort of)..... It all repeats itself with every film. I suppose that can all be forgiven because you can probably considered this series an entire film which is how I'm taking it. The main reason why I like these movies is because nothing beats seeing a bunch of Japanese people yelling and cursing at each other and chopping at each other with samurai swords and shooting each other with guns! It's bad and funny as hell at the same time! As far as the stories are concerned they are written well but for some weird reason I have a very difficult time trying to keep up with Japanese storytelling. It gets a little too complex from time to time. I highly recommend this films for those who have an interest in yakuza culture and all that crap.
