Kaiji 2: Jinsei Dakkai Gemu カイジ2: 人生奪回ゲーム (2011)

Kaiji 2

a year after successfully rid himself of all debts, Kaiji was back in the same debt ridden situation. with the help of those sharing his fate in the underground, he was given 2 weeks to clear his debts and releasing everyone else that was involved. he then came across a pachinko (パチンコ) machine called The Swamp owned by the Teai organization. together with Ichizo, Sakazaki, Tonegawa, and Yumi, they threw every cash they owned into the hands of Kaiji, while their lives were at stake.

like the first Kaiji (2009), Kaiji 2 (2011) had a slow moving pace as well. the building tilting idea might be slightly impressive if not impossible to achieve, but that was how far it went. the rest of the film was mostly predictable, especially the point that Kaiji would win no matter the odds, and having everyone on board, giving him their trusts and everything. the pachinko (パチンコ) machine was a luck ridden game, though in the film it was purposely tweak to have no winner, thus Kaiji and his gang was forced to play around that to win the money it stacked within.
