Such a cool film!
9 August 2019 | by MatthewChandler110See all my reviews

I am so happy I randomly came across this film because it has quickly become one of my favorite Yakuza films. It is vey comparable to Youth of the Beast or Tokyo Drifter, which are two of the more well known Yakuza films. If you are remotely interested in this genre, you don't want to miss this one. Watch it!
