In ideological aspect, it is a pro Abe regime film. Anti-militarism episode is just a salt for this ideological camouflage for exploiting Chinese market.
One of examples is that when Okino torturing the suspect, serial killer Shigeo Matsukura played by Yoshi Sakô, Okino said that 'receiving annual national pension for old ageing population is a garbage'. This typical Neo liberalist thought against national pension system was brought into this quick dialogue. This film is full of Abe regime's concepts everywhere.
In Japan, prosecutors make their prosecuted cases completely guilty and they are protecting pro US and pro WW 2 militarist reactionaries as an independent political interest party in Japanese jurisdictional establishment. They are not any kinds of super heroes nor idols like Takuya Kimura.
In addition, the cinematography is not cinematic at all. It is rather being called TV videography that is typically lacking precise and adequate lighting among faces of actors.
This does not happen in Hollywood films and Hong Kong films. Its lighting does not additionally light up their facial expressions in the most of the scenes.
Lighting is un professional, it affected the entire quality of this videography. Lack of precise lighting on actors' facial performance is also a typical phenomenon of Galapagos production in the islands.
As a Galapagos production for Galapagos market, it is quite adequate. Japanese filmmaking is clearly sinking and decaying in this way. The number of the total amounts of production is just an illusion.
