Legendary director Kinji Fukasaku (Battle Royale, The Black Lizard) takes the helm for this stylish and violent take on the life of a lower echelon yakuza thug striving to survive in a Tokyo where the rules are constantly changing. Thuggish Isamu Okita (Bunta Sugawara) has a bad reputation for his short temper and bad habit of flying off the handle.

Audience Reviews for Gendai yakuza: hito-kiri yota (Modern Yakuza: Outlaw Killer) (Street Mobster)

Street Mobster isn't a bad movie, it's just not the strongest. The movie is centered around the rise, fall, rise, and fall of a gang leader named Okita. After his first fall, he leaves prison to find organized crime is not what it use to be, but instead of adapt or evolve, he keeps his old ways, which is his undoing.

The film looks and sounds like a movie from the 70's which I always love, I just expected more from director Kinji Fukasaku. I watched it as a warm up before I watch the highly praised Yakuza Papers. I know everyone has a starting point before they refine their formula and methods and I feel that is this film.

If you are into this genre, then this film is still worth a watch. If you like the genre but demand a tight script, pacing, etc... you may want to skip this film.
