Nothing really impressive.
6 January 2004 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

Toru Murakawa's "Distant Justice" is a mediocre action film.Like any self-respecting "Death Wish" clone,it certainly delivers plenty of violence,but there is absolutely no suspense to be found here.Visiting America for the first time with his wife and daughter,Inspector Rio Yuki(Bunta Sugawara)discovers how dangerous Boston can be.After Rio's wife inadvertently photographs a drug buy,she is gunned down and his daughter Sakura(Sakura Sugawara)is kidnapped.Despite assurances from his police buddy,soon-to-retire Chief Bradfield(George Kennedy)Rio decides to take the law into his own hands.The film isn't as bad as its rating suggests-it is just extremely routine and predictable.There is a nice amount of violence(even gang-rape attempt scene),so fans of gritty action movies won't be disappointed.My rating:6 out of 10.
