The Fable The Killer Who Doesn’t Kill (2021) Review: Fun and Disturbing

The Fable The Killer Who Doesn’t Kill is an action-comedy movie directed by Kan Eguchi and is the sequel to The Fable. The movie stars Jun’ichi Okada, Shin’ichi Tsutsumi, Yurina Hirate and Mizuki Yamamoto, alongside other cast members. The movie is 133 minutes long.

Netflix describes the movie as:

While trying to live a normal life, a deadly assassin must somehow protect a young woman and confront a man bent on revenge — without killing anyone!

– The Fable The Killer Who Doesn’t Kill review does not contain spoilers –

The Fable The Killer Who Doesn’t Kill starts out gnarly and blood-soaked. For fans of action and adventure, as well the first instalment of the franchise, this is going to be a great start. As very bad people start getting killed, you know you’re in for a start. Anyway, after saving Hinako from her pimp, we jump to the present, where Akira, or The Fable’s execution’s only survivor Utsubo is living a double life. Hinako is there with him as well. So, where does Akira’s newfound discovery of Hinako take him?

The Fable The Killer Who Doesn’t Kill is an interesting move, one that is extremely fun to watch. At 133 minutes, it’s a bit long but it’s absolutely a treat to watch. It’s not just the action sequences that are really nice, it’s also the look into the lives of the people that the movie is based on. The Fable 2 is also not just about Akira, although the name might say otherwise, it’s also predominantly about Utsubo.

His character is the one that we get to think the most about. His two faces are as different as can be and you can’t help but wonder where Utsubo’s true feelings lie. Is he truly a horrible person, does he care about Hinako or does he just use the children and the less fortunate as a way to put up a front for his illegal activities?

It is certain that Utsubo is, at least, a creep just like his business associate Isaki. However, we are concerned with this for most of the movie. The film does a good job of making us wonder about those things. Who is he really – is a question that we constantly ask until we get the answers at the end.

On the other hand, The Fable The Killer Who Doesn’t Kill also takes a look at Akira’s life, now that he has retired from his life of assassinations. His normal job and relationship with Misaki are humorous, just like his odd laughter. He reminds me of Tatsu from The Way of the Househusband, which is always a great thing to think about!

We also get to know about Hinako a bit in-depth. She’s not some forgotten chapter who is being used to get sympathy and make Akira look great. Her backstory and sufferings are very much a major part of the film and every time she comes on-screen. However, she’s not the only secondary character that we delve deep into and the others are really not better than the worst of the lot.

The movie doesn’t go overboard with the storyline nor with the characters which is a blessing because sequels have a tendency to do that. It’s a movie that will get under your skin because it’s so simple and honestly, very empathetic. The Fable The Killer Who Doesn’t Kill is honestly an engaging movie that will keep you engrossed. I was hooked throughout and at no point did I feel bored. However, some scenes are deeply disturbing and be warned that it’s going to stay with you for a long time.

Jun’ichi Okada, Shin’ichi Tsutsumi, Yurina Hirate and Mizuki Yamamoto are awesome in their roles. All of them are very believable in their roles and some are so good that you’d want to murder them.
