Quotes

Yoshi: You look surprised, Hiroki. Cost me a few scars but a man's got to pay his dues to get ahead.
Jack Ellis: You lying son of a bitch.
Yoshi: You should have a word with your wife about lying, Hiroki.
Jack Ellis: Why are you doing this?
Yoshi: Status, rank, power. All our lives, respect and loyalty for the family that did save us and made us predators when we would have been prey. When I didn't go with you, a part of me died, Hiroki. And I suffered for a while. And then it came to me like a moment of clarity. An epiphany. What died ...

Cannot believe some of the reviews
19 February 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I have to say that the only reason that I watched this film, was because of the 7.0 out of 10 rating that it has on IMDb. I've read a review on here that rates it as good as Drive (with Ryan Gosling) I've read another review that rated this movie 10/10. I can honestly say that in my opinion, this film falls way way short of the reviews I've mentioned. To rate it as good as Drive, is to rate Dame Edna Everage as good looking as Jessica Alba....absolutely ludicrous! To rate it 10/10 is to rate it as high as The Godfather 1&2, The French Connection 1&2, The Lord of the Rings Trilogy, The Dark Knight, Inception, The Shawshank Redemption, Schindler's List, Saving Private Ryan, Kill List, Face Off....I could carry on believe me. The acting is some of the worst I've ever seen, no better than the worst soap operas on television at the moment and to say that the action scenes are pathetic is being kind. I would honestly rather sit and watch paint dry than this god awful movie.
