Japanese Political Thriller
10 November 2004 | by (Honolulu, HI) – See all my reviews

An interesting Japanese political thriller done in Tom Clancy style, focusing on the Prime Minister during a national crisis - North Korea has landed a group of military sabateurs on Japanese soil for some nefarious purposes, and as the situation grows worse, and a Japanese SWAT team is slaughtered by the NK military team, the prime minister has to decide whether or not to unleash the Japanese self defense force to counteract the threat. The story focuses primarily on 3 aspects - the prime minister, played by Ikko Furuya, as well as a group of NK spies in Tokyo, and the battle between Japanese forces and the NK military group on the ground in Japan. This has a higher quality of acting than is typical for Japanese movies, and has a real polished and professional look, it definitely has the look of a bigger budget than the run-of-the-mill Japanese movie.
