Like a Dragon

General info
Original title: Ryu Ga Gotoku: Gekijo-Ban (龍が如く 劇場版)
Country: Japan
Year: 2007
Genre: Action, Crime, Drama
IMDB Rating: 6.3 486 votes
Plot: In the sweltering heat of Tokyo summer, the night begins with a hapless bank robbery and the disappearance of ten million yen belonging to the Tojo gang. Meanwhile, yakuza Majima Goro (Kishitani Goro), decked in a gold suit and with more than a few screws loose, is out to fight rival gangster Kiryu Kazuma (Kitamura Kazuki). The somber and seemingly indestructible Kiryu, however, has just left his gang and has in tow a little girl (Natsuo), whose mother he is trying to track down.

In another part of Shinjuku, Satori (Shioya Shun) and his girlfriend (Saeko) decide to start holding up stores for fun, and mysterious Korean hitman Park (Gong Yoo) haunts the rooftops looking to off the culprit behind the Tojo heist.

As the night passes, Majima and Kiryu cross paths repeatedly, in a series of increasingly bloody and bombastic stand-offs that bring them straight to the top of the Millennium Tower.

The screenplay for Ryu ga gotoku: gekijo-ban is based on Sega Corporation's PlayStation 2 game Yakuza (Ryu ga gotoku).

Featured reviews for

Like a Dragon
Variety, by Derek Elley source: http://www.varietyasiaonline.com/content/view/1737/
« Blithely ignoring the opportunities for a CGI-stuffed extravaganza, helmer simply stir-fries his usual mixture of psychopathic gangsters, black humor and childlike innocence into a fast-paced, character-heavy yarn -- set during a single sweltering night -- that's one of his most purely enjoyable pics in ages. »
By Peter Gutiérrez source: http://firefox.org/news/articles/1589/1/Movie-Review--Like-a-Dragon/Page1.html
«As a popcorn flick Like a Dragon is probably right up there with the best you’ll find this year, but don’t look for the intensity and lingering resonance that characterizes much of this visionary’s other work.»
Kezins, by Carlos Macias source: http://kezins.com/2008/07/movie-watch-like-a-dragon-ryu-ga-gotoku/1769
«Fans will be able to get past most of the movie’s flaws, but general audiences shouldn’t fret either as it showcases interesting characters and fighting scenes worthy of most anything Hollywood can produce. Just make sure not to expect a serious flick and take joy in the absurdity of it all.»
LoveHKfilm.com, by JMaruyama source: http://www.lovehkfilm.com/panasia/like_a_dragon.htm
«His latest work Ryu Ga Gotoku (Like A Dragon) is a film that is pure Miike and covers many of his signature themes (Yakuza, innocence lost, bloodlust, cartoon violence and death). ... The amount of male machismo and bare fisted brawling in the film is reminiscent of the Be-Bop High School movies and are every bit as cartoonish in their over-the-top violence.»
