    The only clue that this was directed by Takashi Miike is when Renji Oshibashi desperately pleas to play an ordinary character... Something that was completely ignored by Miike for every subsequent film.

    An enjoyable but not essential show.

    Every match was good to very good including the Syuri vs. Konami UWF rules match, which was pretty interesting.

    The main event between Utami Hayashishita and Maika was excellent though. Utami is amazing.

    Uploaded to one of my favourite Youtube channels that I don't want to mention just in case it gets taken down. I doubt I would have ever even heard of this movie otherwise. (edit: it got taken down)

    The highlight of this standard period yakuza flick is the character of the one-eyed yakuza, Ipponmatsu, who seems to be based on Tatsuya Nakadai's character in Yojimbo only except with one eye and an awesome scar for added coolness.

    There's some good action, a bit of scheming, and again, a bad ass one-eyed yakuza. It deserves more than the 2 or 3 ratings it currently has on Letterboxd.
