Lone yakuza get harrased by the yakuza
15 January 2019 | by sinful-2See all my reviews

This is one of the of the lone "hero/yakuza" who want to go strait is harassed by the yakuza and then ave to try to get away alive.

There is really nothing new in the movie but there are good action sequences and good acting. It is not a movie I would do everything in the world to see but fairly good entertainment and if you find it then I would recommend it for a view.
