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.

According to a recent interview with Miike, the planned sequels won't happen because the film was a financial flop in Japan.
It was way less well received than we expected. (...) So no, there’s no sequel planned and it wasn’t a hit. (...) In any case, it was well received by the writer and a few other people, but no, there won’t be a sequel.
Thank you, Japanese theater goers!
