Justice Done
11 November 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A Buddhist monk fisherman accidentally catchess a pregnant woman in a lake. He manages to give birth to the baby inside her. He raises the child as a monk. Many years later after some Yakuza dudes try to force a woman into marriage, monk Saigen intervenes by throwing buckets of faeces at them. He eventually enters a life of crime and debauchery.

Yakuza Justice isn't your typical Pinku film; it plays more like a Yakuza action films but with sex! All sex is optically censored of course. There's a massacre scene involving a machine gun which wouldn't be out-of-place in a film like: Sonatine or even Scarface. Look out for a Zatoichi/Lone wolf spoof in a field. The film is also quite heavy on humour at the start; some of it is funny; some of it doesn't fit. The sex scenes are OK but the censorship does block out most of the action. The waterfall scene is particularly good.

Recommended: A quality Pinku film but do not expect the usual; this is more a gangster film.
