Low-octaine Chiba film not made by Japan
2 May 1999 | by (Seattle, Washington) – See all my reviews

Barely released in Japan Chiba film features Chiba, Sue Shiomi, Tadashita Yamashita, and Bolo Yeung in this dull actioner. Chiba is the lead, but only second bill, as Bolo Yeung (who has little to do) top billed. This is the first non-Japanese film Chiba did, and probably casted because of THE STREET FIGHTER craze. The end sucked, and Chiba looks bored in the film. Played wide in America (especially the one week run in Los Angeles), and disappeared for many years, only to resurface up in video (print on video has spanish optics and is really worn. Couldn't they pay to get a legit copy?).
