Riki Takeuchi yet again plays a Yakuza tough guy in this Los Angeles set tale of double-crossing gangsters and one mans vengeance against them. Tries to emulate the "heroic-bloodshed" flicks of Hong Kong cinema but fails. The action scenes may not lack blood but do lack the finess of a John Woo epic. Acting is pretty poor all-round, especially from the American actors playing the gangsters - they are truly laughable! But I do enjoy Riki Takeuchi, he's a limited actor but plays the bad-ass very well, but this certainly isn't among his best films. It entertains at times but mostly for the wrong reasons.
