I love these Japanese ultra violent films. They're great, aren't they, and a lot of blood gets spilt in this involving cop corruption crime. Only it's a lot of what I've seen before, with our lead, a bad cop who's walking a tight rope, gets in over his head, having to deal with Internal Affairs, and a corrupt mayor, where basically we know how his fate will ensue at the end of this two, quarter hour movie. Not only this, his wife is dying too, so we can sees little, the why's of his corrupt actions like beating a witness, lowlife, half to death, after accidentally sending a cop, going off a building when a fence gives way. We could of had better acting too, and script, some subtitles, I couldn't believe I was reading. I wasn't surprised again to see a car chase in this either, though that one in that great action film, The Raid 2, surpasses this, making this seem small fry. The first shot of the film, where the same shots used a couple of times, paints a bleak, barren city, as if it's a slum, even though an attracting shot. The actor, playing the mayor probably gives the only real standout performance. He's one suave son of a bitch. Not without interest, definitely. It just didn't rise to other films, or past what I've just said.
