The dead bodies found in the headquarters (toward the end of the film) are arranged in the Japanese symbol (kanji) for "death". See more »
When the driver of the car carrying Aniki is shot from behind, we see his blood splattered on the windscreen. There's also a crack on it, but when we cut to the car crashing from the outside, the windscreen is clean. See more »
I love you Aniki! Wherever you at, man!

to say that this was good is a complete understatement. I had heard about this movie before but never saw until one night it popped up on HBO Zone. I was like "what the hell" and figure it wouldn't hurt to watch, but when I did - I LOVED IT!! there isn't much English dialogue in this movie, but there's enough - it's understandable as it's about a Yakuza gangster(Kitano) who is Exiled from Japan only to form an American Yakuza overseas in the U.S. - He collaborates with his brother(Miko) and his crew to form the organization. Omar Epps is in this as Denny, he is pretty good in this but it was the Japanese in this movie that really made this worth the watch... VERY Good mafia flick
