    One of those films that keeps ratcheting up and up until in the last act you are almost physically assaulted by the camera work, the sound design and some visceral imagery.

    I've never seen boxing filmed in this way. Not that boxing and surrealist imagery hasn't been merged before. I'd argue there is a Lynchian quality to the boxing scenes in Raging Bull. However in Tokyo Fist the boxing is depicted using explosions of colour, usually deep blues and reds.…

This is just Anderson completely losing himself in his fetishes to the point any kind of heart,…

    Maybe Michael Bay's masterpiece, a relentless thrill ride of gorgeous camera work and stunning action with three fantastic central performances.
