Soo: Revenge for a Twisted Fate

2007 / Sai Yoichi > As a revenge noir, Soo has most of the components under its wings, but nonetheless fails to fly. The characters are simply uncompelling and the storyline continuously absurd. In short, it lacked the panache that drove the success and enjoyment of A Bittersweet Life. I wouldn’t be surprised if a little tighter editing could turn this into something a lot more memorable, as its saving grace is its coldness, and that’s both unique and worthy of further exploration.
