After a Yakuza assassin and new recruit are killed in gang crossfire, a crazed scientist rebuilds the two into a cybernetic killing machine that is bent on avenging their deaths. FMY combines elements of Action, SciFi, Crime, and Horror into a cheesy but entertaining revenge flick. While there is more than enough blood to spare in the over-the-top action sequences, there is an equal amount of cheesiness and bad CG work. This would mark my second Yakuza film following ICHI, so while I cannot compare it to other Yakuza entries, I can say that it follows all of the same bland strokes as any other American gangster flick while owing much to the superior films like ROBOCOP. It isn't that the acting or plotting are bad, the film just is not as unique or original as Miike's films to follow. I would put this one on the back burner unless you are a hardcore Miike or Yakuza fan.
