There is a lot of the action and gore and violence in this movie. If you are a fan of Japanese humor you will have many good laughs here too. For those not exposed to Japanese humor you will most likely scratch the back of your head and wonder what the heck that was about.

The plot here is to be kind messy.Basically it’s an orgy of cheesy humor and extreme violence held together by a very light plot.

It has the same kind of mix of gore and laughs that the likes of A Chinese Ghost Story contains, and as a result comes across as a kind of Asian martial arts version of Evil Dead 2 or Peter Jackson's Bad Taste.
