American Yakuza Reviews
An American undercover agent is asked to infiltrate the Japanese Yakuza in the United States, earn their trust, and help bring them down. He falls in love with the boss' daughter and wants to keep her safe while bringing down the father. Meanwhile, the father and opposition put the officer in tough decisions to prove his loyalty.
"An American being accepted into the family doesn't happen every day."
Frank Capello, director of No Way Back and He was Quiet a Man, delivers American Yakuza in his directorial debut. The storyline for this picture is mediocre and disappointing. The action is below average and the acting is also mediocre. The cast includes Viggo Mortensen, Michael Nouri, Franklyn Ajaye, Robert Forster, and Ryo Ishibashi.
"Death does not frighten you?"
"No. Not if it's for the right reason."
I came across this on Showtime Anytime and had to watch this old Mortensen film. I found this painfully bad, cliché, and poorly written. This was a horrible movie and not worth your time.
"Words are overrated."
lower budget film that is Great!
