Travis was raised in Japan, has great connections with the underworld of the streets and is a master in sword and martial arts, trained by a former member of Yakuza. Travis discloses that there is a war between the old and traditional members of Yakuza and the new generation leaded by the deranged and sick Kuroda, who has associated to the Chinese Tong mobster Chen in a powerful drug dealing business. When his fiancée Nayako is brutally and cowardly murdered by one of Kuroda's men, the mission of Travis becomes a personal issue and he seeks revenge.

Don't quit your dayjob, Seagal!
27 November 2005 | by sveknuSee all my reviews

I really mean it. If "The (by now not so) Great One" isn't able to make better movies than this, he definitely should quit the movie business. Each time a new Seagal movie is released, I'm hoping it will be better than his last movies, but I tend to get disappointed every time. "Out of Reach" was in fact a small step into the right direction, but with "Into the Sun" Seagal is back in the sewer. The movie has a plot that sometimes is hard to follow, at least to hard for a movie like this. There are not that many fight scenes, and they are also too short and overall just uninteresting. The most interesting part of the film was when we got to see a short snapshot from one of the newer Gamera-movies. That says it all, doesn't it?
