Storyline

When the governor of Tokyo is killed in his campaign for election, the former CIA agent Travis Hunter is assigned to find the responsible working together with the rookie FBI agent Sean. Travis was raised in Japan, has great connections with the underworld of the streets and is a master in sword and martial arts, trained by a former member of Yakuza. Travis discloses that there is a war between the old and traditional members of Yakuza and the new generation leaded by the deranged and sick Kuroda, who has associated to the Chinese Tong mobster Chen in a powerful drug dealing business. When his fiancée Nayako is brutally and cowardly murdered by one of Kuroda's men, the mission of Travis becomes a personal issue and he seeks revenge.

Trivia

The project was originally set up at Franchise Pictures years earlier, and was much more action-packed and epic in scale. By the time the film went into production, Franchise was cash strapped and could only afford a streamlined version of the original script. See more »

A Good Watch!
3 March 2012 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Mink Directed 'Into the Sun', turns out to be A Good Watch. A Nicely Written Screenplay, along-with Stylish Direction & A Super-Cool Performance by its lead-Star, All-Time Bad-Ass, Steven Seagal, just adds to its glory.

'Into the Sun' Synopsis: When a government official is killed, an American operative with experience in the Yakuza culture is brought into investigate.

'Into the Sun' has an interesting start, an okay middle & a killer end. The Screenplay Written by Seagal himself, is mostly interesting. Mink's Direction is completely Stylish. Cinematography is perfect. Editing is mediocre. Art Design is fair. Action-Sequences are top-notch.

Seagal's Super-Cool Performance is among the merits of this film. And Like Always, his fight-scenes are a pleasure to watch. He's an All-Time Bad-Ass!

On the whole, 'Into the Sun' works. A Must See for Seagal Fans!
