Another blood stained Yakuza masterpiece from Takashi Miike
After seeing his Father clubbed to death Azusa is left to fend for himself on the city streets , A Yakuza boss takes a shine to him and adopts him ,years pass by, Azusa has risen up the ranks of the gang, but after his sworn father - boss is murdered by a maniac gunslinger Azusa forgets his Yakuza code and goes on a one man killing spree and voes to wipe out all and everyone who might be involved in the killing, after learning from the killer himself (a person deeply connected to Azusza )that the hit was ordered by a massive Yakuza family with over 20,000 members, this is however is not enough to put him off and he continues on his vengeance trail. Non stop violent action,economical gritty direction and a great laconic performance from Japan's coolest star in years Masaya Sato, make this a must see for Mafia, Triad, Yakuza and Miike fans alike
