Solid introduction
19 January 2020 | by jellopukeSee all my reviews

This is like the first part of a soap opera so you're not getting a complete story, but you are getting lots of stabbings, brothers on opposite sides, and suffering ladies. If you like Yakuza movies, this is a good one to start with.
