Critic Reviews of "Fireworks"Chicago Sun-TimesJanuary 01, 2000
Takeshi Kitano, who made it, must be very serene or very angry; only extreme states allow such a narrow focus.CineVueJanuary 17, 2017
Hana-Bi is a rare and unique portrayal of violence, futile anger and defiance.City Pages, Minneapolis/St. PaulAugust 21, 2009
Compared to [Takeshi] Kitano, Bruce Willis is a wimp, Harrison Ford is a creep, and Mel Gibson is a joke.Slant MagazineJuly 07, 2004
Kitano uses his own face as a blank slate with which to sketch a complicated human being.AboutFilm.comOctober 23, 2003
Kitano makes static, understated movies about existences wasted, and rediscovering the joy of being, for a brief time, alive.... Violence comes in sudden bursts, as a shocking interruption.Goatdog's MoviesFebruary 28, 2002
A really good example of character development by actions, without the benefit of dialog or mannerisms.WiredSeptember 07, 2001
Moody drama from Takeshi Kitano.Ozus' World Movie ReviewsJanuary 01, 2000
This highly original film is at times a masterpiece and at other times it seems like a grade B-movie.Combustible CelluloidJanuary 01, 2000
A fascinating film.Deseret News, Salt Lake CityJanuary 01, 2000
An exceptional piece of filmmaking, a drama that blurs the line between the ultra-violent cop movie genre and weepy but moving melodrama, and does it very convincingly.Film Journal InternationalJanuary 01, 2000
Simultaneously coolly stylized and surprisingly emotionally persuasive.TheMovieReport.comJanuary 01, 2000
Richly satisfying to the emotions and the senses.
