Storyline

Fish has spent six years in jail. Six years alone. Six years keeping his mouth shut about the robbery, about the other men involved. The night he is released, the four men he protected with silence celebrate his freedom with a congratulatory dinner. The meal is a lavish array of sushi, served off the naked body of a beautiful young woman. The sushi girl seems catatonic, trained to ignore everything in the room, even if things become dangerous. Sure enough, the four unwieldy thieves can't help but open old wounds in an attempt to find their missing loot. Written by Kern Saxton

Trivia

One of the plainclothes policemen in the van outside the place where the "reunion" is being held, tape recording the criminal conversations within, is named "Det. Harry Caul Jr." "Harry Caul" was the master audio surveillance character played by Gene Hackman in "The Conversation" (1974). See more »

Goofs

Duke says that hundreds die in Japan each year from eating Fugu. Only around 35-40 people are treated each year for Fugu poisoning with an average mortality level of 3-4 deaths each year (statistics from 1996-2015). See more »

Fish (Noah Hathaway) has spent six years in jail. Six years alone. Six years keeping his mouth shut about the robbery, about the other men involved. The night he is released, the four men he protected with silence celebrate his freedom with a congratulatory dinner. The meal is a lavish array of sushi, served off the naked body of a beautiful young woman.

Look at this cast: Tony Todd, Michael Biehn, Mark Hamill, Jeff Fahey, Sonny Chiba, Danny Trejo. And then we start out with the song "Diamonds Are Forever" -- known from James Bond, but with a very different meaning here.

We have James Duval -- is he all grown up? And we have the sensibility and spiritual feeling of "Reservoir Dogs", one of the all-time greatest heist movies.

I do not even need to write a real review because this movie is just so darn good.
