Good idea, truculent and extremely schematic scrrenplay. Characters are just alibis for previsible twists. Al leats, Miike has a good and tense hand for action.

"After a 7 year old girl is murdered, the grandfather publicly issues a $10 million bounty on the head of the prime suspect (an already convicted rapist/murderer named Kiyomaru). An idealistic cop is assigned the protect and transport the suspect despite the repeated assassination attempts. Another great movie by Takashi Miike with an intriguing storyline. The idea of all of Japan having their eyes on one man was extremely interesting and gave major tension to the movie. You never knew who was "
