Ah, isn't that Miike's approach to violence in a nutshell?!?

 From the Oxford Thesaurus:

gratuitous  ?adjective 1. gratuitous violence  UNJUSTIFIED, uncalled 
for, unwarranted, unprovoked, undue; indefensible, unjustifiable; 
needless, unnecessary, inessential, unmerited, groundless, senseless, 
wanton, indiscriminate; excessive, immoderate, inordinate, 

If his violence wasn't all these things and more more more more more, 
no one would care about his films. Good luck. Public broadcast would 
mean the violence reached perfection!

Markus---always ready for a bit of the old ultra-violence

PS: Finally, saw DOA 2 and Final this week. If the violence weren't so 
gratuitous I never would have made it through either of them.
