Not bad Kukasaku stuff
13 January 2019 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

A gangster is released from the can and decides to go back to business; This kind of topic has been seen in at least one thousand crime films from Japan before. It is question of friendship among tough guys, vengeance, honor, a bit of romance with the unavoidable geisha and of course lots of violence. Nothing really exceptional in this crime movie, but if you are a Japanese, and particularely Fukasaku's features buff, don't miss this one. This topic could remind you Barry Shear's ACROSS 110th STREET, where three gangster pull a gambling joint heist, a gambling joint belonging to the mob, the mafia. As also was GONIN. Then our three dudes will have to face their own doom..
