Storyline

One of Tanaka's underlings has stolen a rare statuette that he had planned to use as a peace offering between the local Yakusa and Chinese Tong. He hires two private investigators to exchange ransom money to recover the statuette, but the trade goes down bad and Clay Roth is killed. This angers Roth's brothers and father, all combat veterans, and they go after the people responsible. Written by Ed Sutton <esutton@mindspring.com>

Trivia

The song that Lauren Roth picks to play on the Jukebox after Jace Smith's "Emily" ends is "Kicks" composed by Ricky Phillips and the beautiful Tane McClure (who was then called by Tane Cain at the time. Because she was married to Jonathan Cain, the Keyboardist & Rhythm Guitarist of Journey back then), who was known for being the lead singer of the Indie Rock band, Tryanglz. See more »

Quotes

Akira Tanaka: Have you ever had your bones scraped, Mr. Roth?
Tommy Roth: Not recently.
Akira Tanaka: I hear it is not a pleasant experience. First the needle pierces the skin, leaving only the smallest of marks. The bone is scraped away by the gentle movement of the needle until it reaches the marrow.

Only 4.4...??? Come on...
28 May 2010 | by (Sunny Southern California, USA) – See all my reviews

Okay, as another reviewer already stated right off in the beginning of his review, 'The movie delivers what is expected' Now, come on! You already bloody KNOW that this is not gonna be high art anyway. You've got David 'well tie my genitals down!' Carradine and ol' Lee Van 'Angel Eyes' Cleef for Goodness sake! And, you even have Mako and the ULTRA-cool Asian guy who was the b*tch'n Alien with the awesome looking eyes in the 6 total episodes of 'Space Rangers' (which I have, BTW - and, I'm sorry, but this guy even out-COOLS David Carradine) ANNNNND, if that is not enough, you even have the ICONIC Dick Miller ANNNNNND Michael Berrymen!!! (even snapping his misshapen fingers in a David Lynch syncopated way and giving a Lambata glare to the camera when the radio goes on after a guy he just shot get's thrown into it! (you notice I didn't say WHO got shot, so no 'Spoiler Warning' needed : )

I mean, what the HELL more do you want for THIS kind of film...???!! I'm not normally a fan of outright CHEEEEEZ as a rule, but this is good SOLID CHEEEEEEEZ that is fully enjoyable and fun.

So, yeah, I'm gonna give it a 9 because 4.4 just simply isn't right...
