YesAsia Editorial Description

Kitano Takeshi brings his signature yakuza film style overseas in the 2000 film Brother, which premiered at the 57th Venice International Film Festival. Kitano stars as yakuza enforcer Yamamoto who escapes to Los Angeles after his clan gets wiped out in a gang war. There he reunites with his estranged half-brother Ken (Claude Maki, A Scene at the Sea), a drug dealer. Yamamoto gathers Ken and his friends, including Denny (Omar Epps), to form a gang, and quickly grows and expands their power and turf. Their rising status, however, soon sets them on a collision course with the mafia.

VERY GOOD Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
I really like Takeshi Kitano. His movies are all with combination of drama and action. In this film, because its in America, she seldom speak but everytime he talk, is with a combination of humor. Great movie. Worth buying!!

good movie Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
This is actually the first movie I've ever bought online and at the time i loved it so much it became my favorite..This is a must buy for any gangster head like myself who loves gangster films. Marcus Epps and Tak have great chemistry in this movie. Not a very long movie and moves very quickly which i didn't really like. Overal, great buy

Brother – Japanese version – Running Time & Motion Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
This film is a special favourite of mine, understated & well paced. As far as the film itself you will find plenty of reviews, if it is your taste you will probably love it too.

Hearing that there was a large difference between the uncut & cut version I looked & found this. Assured the running time was 144 mins I bought it.

Be warned the running time is 108.42 mins (1hour 49 min) without credits.
Now incase you are looking at your version & reckon it is nearly 4 mins shorter again be warned. I have run this version next to my old copy (film four version) and there is NO EXTRA FOOTAGE. The UK version just runs a bit quicker. I suspect that the film four version (white cover) is the uncut version at 104.20 mins or 108 mins as it says on the box. So both are the same version....almost.

The footage is the same BUT here are two considerations for this Japanese version:

+ If you are Japanese or understand fluently, the subtitles can be completely switched off. (Film four version when off still translates the Japanese; as the Japanese version will not translate the English speech when on English subs).

- The Japanese version whether viewed at 720 or 1080 resolution on a plasma screen suffers greatly from motion blur – horizontal lines. This is most annoying BUT does not seem to be a problem when viewed on an 18 inch LCD PC flatscreen. The picture also, by comparison of version, seems not as sharp and possibly a little darker.

Rate: Film 9/10 – Japanese Version 6/10

Hope this helps.

Takeshi-esk Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
It was a pretty good gangster film with some wicked scenes. This actually showed me how a life with a gang can lead to a deadend. You'll love the scene with the chopsticks.
