This was another Amazon recommendation, and I'm glad I watched this one. The library had it, so I had nothing to lose but time.

This movie was so riveting I had to wait a few hours (had some stuff to take care of) and re-watch it. Some of it was way too visceral for me - such as the sushi bar scene and one of the first scenes where a bad guy gets his due. Ouch.

It also has one of the coolest bad-guy sidekicks I've seen since a Bond movie.

I can totally understand why Quentin Tarantino is such a fan, and I had the same experience another commenter on imdb/amazon had: after a few minutes, you forget you're reading subtitles vs. hearing it in English.

I just checked the other two in the "trilogy" out of the library and I will watch them soon. I hope they are even half as good.

Sympathy For Lady Vengeance is great and graphically worth seeing, take a look :)
