Fun Pseudo-Western Action
12 August 2015 | by See all my reviews

Like something out of a B-grade Western, Shinji (Kobayashi), the Watari-dori (rambler) arrives on the outskirts of a town in southern Kyushu on a horse, carrying a guitar. He meets his old nemesis/comrade in arms: the hired gun (Jo Shishido). Then he stops at the Sagara Ranch, where he stops an incident. The ranch is the target of a local casino owner and mobster Matoba (Akira Yamauchi), who wants to turn it into a golf resort. The ranch's owner, young lush Sagara (Kinoura), refuses to sell. At the same time Sagara's sister, Kyoko (Ruriko Asaoka) returns from Tokyo. Shinji decides to stay and help. And the action begins. I like the cheesy pseudo-western overtones, and I like the dryness of the main characters as they go through the ordeal. Things get a little inventive when Matoba has Shinji and Shishido shoot each other in his office. There are other fight scenes and gratuitous festival scenes. Kobayashi is cooler than cool, while Asaoka perfects her headstrong girl role.
