One of the best movies nobody saw
30 June 1999 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

What do you get when you cross Robert Rodriguez with a little bit of John Woo? Answer: Back to Back!!!

This movie is GREAT(much better than American Yakuza I). I saw this movie in Indonesia where it was playing in an obscure kinda cinema. I didn't expect anything and it totally blew me away. It's funny to say the least. You can see that it's low budget but you don't care. The script is great and the characters are over the top. I especially liked the Elvis lovin' Yakuza. I don't understand why Roger Nygard hasn't been noticed yet by any big Hollywood studio.

Overall a good script with some great dialogue and good acting from everybody especially Danielle Harris and even Michael Rooker. So go rent this movie!!!
