Mafia War
31 January 2008 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

When the mobster Iwaida Nishikawi is executed by the hit man Takeshi, his family chases the killer. Takeshi's brothers Takashi and Hideshi Miwa try to find Takeshi, who is hidden with the nurse Rie Ishibashi, to protect him and Hideshi discovers that Takeshi was secretly sent by their Yakuza boss to eliminate Iwaida. Meanwhile, the mobster Kenmoshi abducts Takashi's wife Mariko and rapes her, trying to force Takashi to deliver his brother to him.

"Family" is a reasonable movie of Yakuza war directed by Takashi Miike. However, the screenplay is very confused and there is no conclusion of the story that ends with Hideshi seeking his brother Takeshi. There are also flashbacks of the Miwa family and I am not sure whether this film is a sequel with a sequence not released in Brazil. The acting is excellent and the violent scenes are very well choreographed in unusual angles. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): "Cena Mafiosa" ("Mobster Scene")
