Starring Riki Takeuchi, Renji Ishibashi, Sonny Chiba, and Tetsuro Tanba, this is an electrifying movie that provides laughs, excitement, and some really crazy action. It has all the trademarks of a classic yakuza film; betrayal, revenge, honor and love set in the heart of modern day Shinjuku to a pounding rock score from the Japanese psychedelic rock group “Flower Travellin’ Band”.
Whether you’re a fan of action movies, the yakuza genre, or Miike as a director, don’t miss this little known gem from a prolific director.
