Pointless waste of time
24 November 2019 | by mcousi11See all my reviews

A thriller with 'comic' elements which is neither thrilling not funny. Okada is utterly wooden - with apologies to wood. Fumino Kimura is totally wasted as a whiny voice with a drink problem. The plot seems to have been made up as they shot the film. Really, not all not mangas can be adapted for film!
