16 thinkers gathered together to discuss the political issues in Japan, such as reuse of nuclear plants, accepting right of collective self defense, TPP, the secrecy law and the revision of constitution by Abe regime.
This documentary shows that how Japanese citizens determined to fight against Abe regime's War and the Law of Jungle policy. Instead more than eight hundreds participants stated that opposition to Abe regime.
The Blue Sky is the first Asian digit-3D student film featuring individual tragedy between the Chinese pilot Zhengliang, Xu and the young Japanese pilot Ryuta, Watanabe in The Second Sino-Japanese War, 'brutality of war' as its theme.
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. Written by

Director mink actually shot the film in Super 35 with the intention of framing the completed picture in the 2.35:1 aspect ratio, but when Sony decided to send the film straight to DVD, the studio instead re-framed the picture to 1.85:1. See more »
For the filming of Japan scenes, there are far too many left-hand drive vehicles to make the scenes believable as Japan. See more »

Derivative, dull and clichéd, not one of Seagal's finest hours
Steven Seagal's best film will always be Under Siege to me. Not all his films are a waste of time, but over the years especially the case with Out for a Kill and Submerged his films have taken a nosedive in quality, and have ranged from just okay to very poor.
Into the Sun does have a good soundtrack and some decent moments, but overall it was just adequate for me. Into the Sun occasionally looks good, but there are a lot of scenes where the editing looks messy, and the direction is a very uneven mix of occasionally decent to sorely lacking.
The characters are little more than walking clichés(that's my opinion of course), with Seagal's partner very underused in particular. I have no better news about the acting, Steven Seagal looks unkempt and gives another quite lazy performance, while William Artherton seemed bored.
The fight sequences are not well-edited and don't make much sense within the plot. Speaking of the plot, it is very thin and derivative complete with a pace that is monotonous and sluggish and a script that at best is very weak.
Overall, not one of Seagal's finest hours. 3/10 Bethany Cox
