The Violence Action is probably a bit more enjoyable if you've read the manga it's based on, but overall, the film doesn't have much weight to its story. Even though there are a ton of fighting scenes and a lot of violence, the film is largely boring with little characterization and even fewer stakes.

The film does have some cool stylistic moments, and the majority of the cast is doing their best to carry the film, with Hashimoto showcasing some fun and charisma. But style doesn't make up for the fact that there's just not enough going on with the script for The Violence Action to have any gravitas.
