The Assassin is better than the first undercover mission
Yakuza Deka 2 : The Assassin is another name for this film and is listed under the Assassin on the IMDb.
Actors killed off from the first movie reappear in the second which shows no link to Yakuza Deka other than the central character being called Hayata.
This feels like it is a remake of the first film with virtually the same plot but with added campy fun. It is better than the original and the climax is as exciting as it is ridiculous. This film starts out over the top and decides to stay there.
As ever in Asian films, the Western characters are despicable and lascivious. Bizarrely, even though he is undercover, Sonny Chiba still has time to attend police briefings so no-one is worried about the Mob having their own sources within the Police.
