Upon his release from prison, Fish is brought to an abandoned restaurant by his old associate, Duke, to celebrate his newfound freedom. However, there's unfinished business that Duke is determined to solve.
Fish has spent six years in jail. Six years alone. Six years keeping his mouth shut about the robbery, about the other men involved. The night he is released, the four men he protected with silence celebrate his freedom with a congratulatory dinner. The meal is a lavish array of sushi, served off the naked body of a beautiful young woman. The sushi girl seems catatonic, trained to ignore everything in the room, even if things become dangerous. Sure enough, the four unwieldy thieves can't help but open old wounds in an attempt to find their missing loot.Written by
While eating fugu, Duke says "I cannot see her tonight. I have to give her up. So I will eat fugu." This is, in fact a famous senryu from Japanese poet Yosa Buson, written in the 18th century. See more »
Duke says that hundreds die in Japan each year from eating Fugu. Only around 35-40 people are treated each year for Fugu poisoning with an average mortality level of 3-4 deaths each year (statistics from 1996-2015). See more »
Remember you are a tray. You must not move. You must not make eye contact. You must not react. No matter what you see... or hear.

A character called "Fish" (Noah Hathaway ) is released from Prison after serving six years for a diamond heist, he meets up with his accomplices whom he protected during his sentence, for a 'celebratory' meal, a lavish array of sushi, all laid out on a beautiful young woman...well it beats a Bernie Inn I suppose!
I wasn't expecting much from this film, I'd never even heard of it until now, just a seen it all before yarn, but what you get is an intriguing blood soaked plot, plenty of twists, a more than satisfying 'twist' finale, and a cool Tarantino style exploitation cast of Tony 'Candyman' Todd, Sonny Chiba, Danny Trejo, Micheal Biehn and an almost unrecognizable Mark Hamill looking like the love child of John Presscott and Eddie Izzard!!
A bloody enthralling slice of cinema that the aforementioned Tarantino could have served out.
