Storyline

Karate meets Kalashnikovs as the uncontrollable force and the immovable object are thrown together in this bloody hilarious action comedy! Hiro's a Tokyo cyber-punk Yakuza with a simple mission: smuggle a toilet made of pure heroin to New York City. If he fails his boss will stick his sword where the rising sun don't shine. Marco's a muscle mountain enforcer working for a family of ex-commandos from the Bosnian war. He's an entry-level thug with dreams of rising up the ranks. But in the Bosnian mob, promotion is spelled AK-47. When a bloody New York mob war erupts and Hiro and Marco snatch the toilet. It's worth millions - if they can find somebody who can decipher the Japanese chemistry formula. Wounded, hunted and dragging a 50-pound toilet made of heroin; they race around New York. Through sleazy alleyways, bouncer brawls, sniper shoot-outs and a biker war they're on a quest to find a Japanese chemist. Problem is Marco has a nasty habit of getting shot and Hiro is just looking for ... Written by Dean Bajramovic

Awesome, so much better than you'd dare to expect!
15 January 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

So clearly not a movie with a big budget, it's still better than any B movie. Good story, characters and thoroughly engaging. If you can relate to anything in the movie it's even better, and more engaging. I don't know what that other reviewers (2 at this point) are going on and on about. It's simple. Most movies are stupid. The stupidness in this movie is just cuz they aren't playin the smartest guys, so it kinda makes sense. It only makes the movie better.

The characters are almost realistic.... ya! Go figure. Clearly the writer/director knows people like the ones portrayed in the film, and there are some crazy and/or scary dudes in the story. They act a lot like the ones I ... uh can't confirm or deny knowing ;) The only thing bad thing is that the bikers seem off, they're kinda whack. But there is reason given for this early on, so.... since the rest of the movie rocks - forgiven! It even shows functional instructions for a rudimentary Y spliff. Amazing. Now I'm going on..

If you think it might be your kind of movie, it probably totally is.
