Nick Lowell: I want you to allow me to kill him. Give this warrior a weapon and let him show us how strong and brave he really is.
[to Orochi]
Nick Lowell: What do you have to fear?

Ignore critics and watch this movie
10 March 2018 | by lilydavis-46130See all my reviews

The critics are once again wrong. This is a good yakuza movie although there are better movies but I enjoyed this movie. It is slow going, building up characters. The climax and ending are good. Jared Leto is great in this movie, playing the silent but dangerous American who gets involved with the Yakuza. Leto's character is mysterious, maybe too mysterious. It would have been nice to understand his motivation and background. There is a small caveat to his former life but it is so small that it does not answer any questions except that's Leto's character is brutal. I didn't think this was the white savior type of movie like The Last Samurai. Please watch and support movies like this, movies that take a chance.
