Buckle-Up & Hang On Tight...
25 June 2005 | by (South of Beautiful Canada) – See all my reviews

...Cuz "TRIPLE CROSS" starts out movin' fast & it doesn't slow down 'til it ends! Nothing really original as for plot, but that wont matter much 'cuz Mr. Fukasaku's middle name is "Style" (or is it "Slick") & he knows how to make mediocre movies ROCK! This one literally

So far I've seen maybe half of Kinji's films that have been released in the US & I've enjoyed them all. "Triple Cross" however is one I'll be adding to my personal stash! Sonny Chiba's girlfriend "Mai" (Keiko Oginome) alone makes it worth owning, Her facial expressions as she's spraying bullets are great! Let alone the kick-ass stunt drivin' chase scenes throughout!

By no means is this a "flawless" flick, but it works so well that the minor stuff goes by hardly noticed...and I notice! Had this been another American/Hollywood P.O.S. it wouldn't even be worth writing about, but Kinji Fukasaku knew how to make movies! May he forever rest in peace. If you like wonderful violence & splendid action without having your intelligence insulted...LOOK NO FURTHER!!!
