You can never trust anybody who speaks that much jive....
9 August 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you ever had a single reason to doubt the greatness of Bruce Lee or Chuck Norris, Sonny Chiba in the role of Terry Tsurgi, a deadly half-breed assassin for hire, will make you a believer that they're ammeters in every sense of the word.

Continuing from the last film, "The Street Fighter", Terry is hired once again by the Yakuza to take out two former members who could very easily disclose some very important info to the cops, namely that the boss is hoarding money in order to build a fake dojo. Joining him is his partner Kitty, a jive talking embodiment of the seventies who loves popping in 8-tracks in Terri's "gettaway car" and grooving the hell out.

And yet me just say, if you are squeamish around blood or violence, DO NOT WATCH THIS.

This quite possibly the most brutal kung fu film ever made, but that's what makes it so great.

For instance, there's a scene in the spa which turns out to be a trap set up by the Yakuza. Terry throws half the men into a sauna, locks the door, and jacks up the heat to the point where the crime stooges are broiled alive.

But honestly the violence is what makes it so beautiful and so memorable because it's done on such a intricate level of insanity that you can't help but laugh. Terry does these things, these viciously savage inhumane things in order to honor the memory of his father, to let no man overtake, to let nobody else be "the number one man".

If you are any sort of Kung Fu buff, or simply just a fan of Eastern cinema, you owe it to yourself to watch this over and over again with your friends, by yourself, with estranged family members Because no one should be without knowledge of the greatness that is Sonny Chiba
