The second film in the Yakuza Papers series is not as good as the first because the violence and general shoot-em-up plot got a little tiresome at times. However, the style of the film , the soundtrack, the excellent editing, and Bunta Sugawara's presence as Shozo Hirono kept me engaged. I simply love Fukasaku's exciting pacing and continued experimentation with the camera. What keeps me wanting to watch more is the connections that freeze frames containing dates and names make between fiction and reality. A memorable scene is the killing of Tokimori with the envelope slipped halfway between the door, when he reaches for it, Shozo's man is signalled by the envelopes movement and he shoots Tokimori. I was not drawn into or interested in following Kinya Kitaoji as Shoji Yamanaka or Sonny Chiba as Katsutoshi Otomo compared to the first film where I was really glued to the screen watching Hirono, Sakai, and the pathetic Yomomouri. The love story between Yamanaka and Yasuko added a different feel to the film rather than it just being about sheer violence and murder, but after a while it turned contrived and formulaic. The highlights of this film were: Matsunaga and the increased involvement of the police.
More double crossing as the series continues with a number of different families trying to stake their claim. Sonny Chiba was enjoyable as an angry underboss out to get what's his along the way. This one throws Meiko Kaji (Lady Snowblood) into a love story which fits right in and helps with character development.
Even though a lot of characters come and go, they're all strong and memorable. Any fan of the gangster genre should give Yakuza Papers a view.
Fukasaku, Chiba and Bunta in an awesome yakuza flick that I may like a little better than the original. This one focuses more on a yakuza who is doomed to tragedy while Chiba plays a psychopath rival. Excellent film.
