«Filled with enough twists, turns and red herrings to keep you guessing as to some of the characters' true motivations, [email protected] is a fun thriller even if it could have been a whole lot more. The main problem with the film is Naohito Fujiki's performance, or lack there of. Thankfully, [email protected] has Yukie Nakama to fall back on. »
«For its genre, this is a very good film. Excusing its fairly shallow characterizations and some arguably overly stylized bits (which, really, one can expect with a title that includes an @ mark for an "a"), [email protected] is well worth playing. Recommended.»
