"Rising Sun of Death" is pretty much Castillo playing tour guide through the Japanese underworld, but I stand by my assertion that whenever you inject the Yakuza into some medium (TV, movie, what-have-you), it's gonna be good. C'mon, they're cool, and even if the episode or movie is lousy, it at least means we get assassinations by blade. This isn't the tightest of Miami Vice episodes, but is a marked improvement over the more, shall we say, "notorious" entries into season 4. At least they're serious about this one.
There are some cool night scenes, a car chase and Trudy in a jaw-dropping skirt. All in all, not bad.
