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

Needs to be recategorized.
22 July 2013 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Gangster Exchange definitely needs to be recategorised because, being listed as just an action movie (on IMDb), that's what potential viewers expect and, whilst it IS an action movie, it isn't the kind that action fans would have expected. That is why it needs to be also categorised as a comedy and crime movie.

Maybe I'm a bit slow but, when I started watching Gangster Exchange (expecting, as I say, a hard-hitting action flick), it concerned me a little that I kept falling into spells of laughter at regular intervals and thinking to myself, "Why the heck am I laughing at what is supposed to be a tough gangster film?" Now, had I seen that it was supposed to be funny, I would have gone into it with a totally different mind-set - and therein lies a major shortcoming.

Not that being a comedy (as well as an action, gangster flick) made Gangster Exchange anywhere near being a better movie. Don't get me wrong. But it would have had me in a different frame of mind to watch it. As it is, this is not a great movie by anyone's reckoning. I had never heard of any of the actors and the budget was quite obviously low. Actually, the comedy aspect was probably better served than the action!

So, if you find yourself in the DVD shop and can't see anything you haven't already seen to hire and gangster Exchange jumps off the shelf at you (because you are in the Action section as that is what you like) AND you are bored to death and wondering how to fill a cold, wet afternoon, it may be worth a dollar to rent. But if it isn't cold and wet, go for a walk in the park. Your time would have been better spent!
