Review by Paul
This is a dynamic, violent film which offers a rarely seen glimpse into the brutal nature of the Yakuza world. In the typical style of director Takeshi, silences often speak volumes and the tension which is generated through the story keeps the viewer engrossed throughout its entirety. Complimented by excellent performances from the cast.
You are a fan of violent action films this film has similarities to films such as Goodfellas and Casino but with the unique style of Takeshi.
There is a dark underworld which exists in stark contrast to the extremely suave nature of modern Japan. I am now keen to further explore the work of Takeshi.
