Sort of more restrained crime story from Funky Forest director. I'm not really a huge fan of Japanese Weird films, but thought this one might be constructed well enough to be enjoyable, which it was for the most part. These two assassins, named Vertebrae and Viscera, are sort of the main attractions even though the main characters are a kid and a hardened verteran/driver in charege of smuggling illicit cargo (like bodies). Vertebrae's pretty badass, using nunchucks to shatter people's heads in super slow motion. Viscera is also capable I guess but only really fights once and it doesn't effectively show his skill so who knows.
I think this movie is a victim to festival fatigue. It's technically good and I enjoyed myself well enough, but wasn't blown away and found nothing exceptionally special about it so therefore I'm already forgetting everything about it. Sorry, Smuggler!
