Sean Patrick Flanery,
Gena witnesses the murder of her son by a Japanees hit-man. He accidentally shoots the boy during a hit on a rival gang of bus operators. Gena then dedicates her life to revenge, and seeks out the gunman. But are the other (mystical) influences involved ? Written by
After her son is shot and killed in a Yakuza hit, Virginia Madsen goes after the killers, using an ancient Japanese myth about dragon tattoos to plot her revenge. Unlike another female assassin film, "Ms. 45", the plot here is not straightforward, and is somewhat unpredictable. The movie is well photographed, and has an outstanding rhythmic soundtrack, that reminds me of the work of Philip Glass. There is plenty of violence, and things progress at an acceptable pace. It should be noted that Harry Dean Stanton has a very limited part as a tattoo artist. As female revenge thrillers go, "Blue Tiger" ranks with with the best of them. Recommended viewing. - MERK
