Audience Reviews for Back to Back: American Yakuza 2

I had no idea this was a sequel. It's also not like I felt as if I were missing somethin coming in late. Just seems to be another run of the mill buddy cop flick. Rooker plays the kind of guy he always does. It's nothing new or unique. Not horrible but there are better things to watch out there.

Ok follow up to an ok movie. Not much special but a straight man performance by Bobcat Goldthwait is almost worth watching for lol.
