As a kid in school, Juzo (Shun Oguri) was bullied by Akai, who ultimately even poured acid into his face. Now he's grown up, and moves into a new appartment ... and who is his neighbour? - Akai (Hirofumi Arai). And he gets a new job at a construction company ... and who is his immediate superior ? - Akai.

Soon enough, the abuse starts all over again, but since their last encounter, Juzo has changed, and now everytime he is pushed to the limits by someone, he changes into violent No 13 (Shido Nakamura), who doesn't even refrain from killing ...

At first, No 13 only kills small fry, like a neighbour (Takashi Miike) complaining about the noise coming from his appartment, or even Seki (Tomoya Ishii), Juzo's friend who threatened to give his secret away to Akai, but then Juzo/No 13 prepare for the final blow: Juzo persuades Akai's wife (Yumi Yoshimura) to let her babysit their son ... but then he simply doesn't bring the boy back and lets Akai find out who he is and where he's waiting for him - their old school.

Akai enters the school, pumpgun in hand, but Juzo tricks him into shooting his own son before disarming him and putting the gun to his head, and ... the end.


The film starts interesting enough, as the story of a little guy striking back against his bullies ... then though it loses itself in a plot reminiscent of Marvel Comics' The Hulk - and not even being an interesting variation on the subject. Esopecially the ending totally fails to pack a punch: While up to here, one was somehow able to identify with Juzo, the underdog turned killer, but at the climax, he has simply turned out to be a bully as bad as Akai ... and with that in mind, one simply doesn't care anymore about the outcome of their duel ...

You know, this could have been good, great even. Only ... it isn't, it's crap !
