A CONVOLUTED MESS! DON'T MISS IT!
17 December 2001 | by (UNITED STATES) – See all my reviews

I love Sonny Chiba movies, and knowing that he was in this, I had to rent it. If you can make heads or tails out of the incomprehensible plot, I'll eat both of my legs right in front of you! And the saddest part is that Sonny isn't even the star. That burden falls on the shoulders of his protegee, Hiroyuki Sanada. But what other movie can you name where you get Sonny Chiba as a gambler/magician/cop?
