Resurrection of the Golden Wolf is a Japanese crime epic about a seemingly innocent office worker that has a very, very interesting night life, namely killing drug dealers, stealing drugs, selling drugs, sleeping with women, tearing down large corporations, and just about everything else that you can think of.
If for nothing else, just watch this movie for the main character. Asakura is simply one of the must cut throat, evil, and simply awesome characters that you will ever see in any movie. Throughout the entire movie, Asakura will display his skills through a series of wonderfully shot action sequences, all of which are accompanied by some great funk music. Every action Asakura makes will disgust you, but it will also fascinate you, forcing you to continue watching, just to see how low he will stoop just for some yen.
Honestly, yes this movie does have some problems. The script has a few entertaining lines like "The safest thing to do is convert all my money into heroin,"but to me that just made the movie more enjoyable. There are a few plot holes. You might even be three fourths of the way into thee movie before you even figure out the plot, but in the end that is OK because the main character is so entertaining that you wont even notice. All you really will be doing is sitting on the edge of your seat and wondering what crazy, awesome thing Asakura will do next.
Oh, and for all of you watching the version in the Sonny Chiba collection, Sonny is the photographer guy.
