“I’ll finish both of you bastards today!”
Riki-Oh is absolutely terrible. The actors are bad, the story is completely over the top, the dialogues are ridiculous and the effects are cheap. And that’s exactly why this is so much fun to watch. Actually the film sticks very close to the original manga, so close in fact, that the manga was probably used as a storyboard, which is why the film falls into trash instantly, cause the manga is just too exagerated in every aspect to make for a serious life action film.
It’s almost hard to believe that Riki-Oh has been made with all the extreme violence and crazy ideas. Definitely one of my favorite guilty pleasures.
