Great stuff, even if not in one league with its prequel
14 January 1999 | by See all my reviews

This is the sequel to Hibotan Bakuto - Hanafuda Shôbu, the very best Yakuza movie ever made. It's not that good, but still it's quite entertaining for fans of the prequel. Oryu searches for the young, blind girl she left alone in Part One, only to find her a thief in Tokyo. She tries to help her, but again she stands between the fronts of a gang war... Much bloodier than the original, this is a good swordfighting adventure, even if the main theme of gambling is quite underrepresented. The great Fuji Junko is back again, and gives an even better performance,but is hampered by stupid dialogue (at least in the subtitled version) and too many repetitions from Part One. But why change a winning horse?
