Terrific fourth installment is a violent, bloody epic
3 October 2005 | by (Mountains of Madness) – See all my reviews

The fourth installment of this series details how escalating violence amongst yakuza created a bloody fallout that resulted in the deaths of many innocent civilians. As a result of public and political pressure to crack down on the violence, the police were forced to act against the crime families they had co-existed with for so long.

You would be doing yourself a disservice watching this entry if you had not seen the previous three. It is simply the fifth hour in a close-to-eight-hour epic that examines, in fascinating detail, the rise of post-WW2 organized crime in Japan.

This is a particularly bloody, nasty installment that is filled with action, intrigue, political maneuvering and vicious back-stabbing.

Fukasaku's grasp of the material is firm and the performances remain at the highest standard.

Terrific.
