Audience Reviews for Jingi naki tatakai: Dairi senso (Battles Without Honor and Humanity: Proxy War)

The Yakuza Papers is Japan's answer to America's The Godfather which was released a few years before. The yakuza and mobster are distant cousins that follow similar codes and are bound by a sense of honor to their boss. Director Fukasaku doesn't use violence for the sake of violence and his films, like those of all true artists, represent the reality that surrounds them.

If you've made it this far into the series, chances are you really enjoy the story or at least the ultraviolence portrayed among the whiny crime bosses (makes you wonder how they got there in the first place) and the tough as nails gangsters that back them up....when they're not changing sides.

Liked the comparison of proxy wars between USA and USSR to that of Yakuza gangs by the narrator at the beginning. I thought the pointless violence might be turned down a notch in favor of a smart script focusing on inner politics of the Yakuza, which happened to some degree but not enough to make this a smart film. I loved the fact that Shozo and Yomomori played larger parts in this film than they did in "Deadly Fight in Hiroshima". Shozo's character by this film, the 3rd in the series, had grown considerably complex, which just added to the joy of watching the series and his life unfolding as a Yakuza. Uchida was a great character to add along with what his presence added to the story. Yomomori is one of the funniest and lamest crime bosses I have seen: he weeps when Matsunaga tries to defy him and says "Can't you see how I feel!"-just hilarious. Another nice touch was the camaraderie between Matsunaga and Hirono. The interaction between all the underbosses was great too. Nice ending as well here. The problem was that it was confusing at times and was more of a set up for Police Tactics.
