A review out of the Fantasia festival:

Yeah, I'll sit this one out. The interview headline stating that this flick sees Miike going mainstream was pretty funny though. Miike's been a mainstream filmmaker for at least 10 years now.

I should have but I didn't. Fans of the source manga/anime may have a different reaction but this predictably overlong slog just wasn't for me. I somewhat enjoyed a bit where a villain controls a toy army and uses its tanks, helicopers and soldiers to attack the protagonists but that's about it.
