      Audience Reviews for Dead or Alive: Final

      • Oct 07, 2008

        OK, this doesn't compare to the explosive tempo of the first part's opening sequence; nor to its visual shock value; nor, for that matter, to the melancholic suspense of the second installment. No, it's surprisingly and refreshingly different (apart, of course, from the two main actors). The tongue-in-cheek futuristic scenario drives the characters towards each other across genres and languages with an almost gravitational force. The moment of impact-conclusion is your choice of: a)Shakespearean metaphor of life and humanity in a cartoon costume; b)sublimation of violence into homo-erotics; c)humorous detonation of an impossible buildup. Everything up to then is even less unequivocal. Highly recommended to indiscriminate movie buffs who don't mind following foie gras with a hot dog; caution to those with more refined palates.

        While not as fast-moving as earlier Miike thrillers like Shinjuku Triad Society, Dead or Alive: Final does pick up the pace from its two predecessors, and replaces the brutal violence of the first with some exciting martial arts/gunplay. There's a confusing climatic attempt to draw all three movies together, plus some pretty cool mecha-violence complete with a jaundiced skyline. Overall, a nice finish to an insane trilogy. <a href="http://s273.photobucket.com/albums/jj203/goji9000/?action=view¤t=dead_or_alive_final_xl_02--film-C.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i273.photobucket.com/albums/jj203/goji9000/dead_or_alive_final_xl_02--film-C.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a>

        A lot better from what i was expecting, considering that must people don't give a lot of credit to this one. It's a nice spoof of sci/fi concepts. A fit ending to a very unique trilogy.

        The film unfolds in post-apocalyptic Yokohama, 2364, and the future looks just like, well... present day! Must I excuse Miike's low budget for his extensive, prolific filmography? That's the question. To say that this is not Miike's style would be misleading, since he has around 10 different direction styles. The slow pace and the spoofs of sci-fi concepts actually help to enhance the post-apocalyptic atmosphere, and the yellow color is not as annoying as one would expect, but not even the funny Tetsuo reference in the final fight scene made of this a sufficiently strong guilty pleasure. 74/100
