User Reviews

a film Sonny Chiba forgot he starred in.
31 December 1999 | by Serpent-5See all my reviews

I met Sonny Chiba and talked about this film, and he didn't know what film I was talking about. This film (barely released in America) is another quick entry on the Chiba action craze that was hot in the 70's. The problem is that the American distributor forgot to dub (in English) 20% of the film ! The film stars the usual stock actors that stars in Chiba films like Yusef Osman, Jiro Chiba, and guest star Giant Baba (famous Japanese wrestler). Lots of good action, excellent soundtrack, and funny gags.
