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. When he returns to the streets after a harrowing stint in jail, the ever-changing climate finds him struggling to survive. When adaptation to the new way of gang life proves futile for ex-con Isamu, the misfit forms his own gang with the intention of getting revenge on those who wronged him in the past. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide

Flying Off The Handle by eblake7 April 6, 2007 - 9:49 AM PDT

This is one of those movies, like Goodfellas or The Departed, where is it seems like every five minutes somebody, usually Mayumi Nagisa, flys off the fucking handle. He rapes! He stabs! He's sooooo PISSED OFF! He's like Shakespeare's Hot Spur trapped in Mean Streets Japan, forever destined to lose, but with the volume turned up to eleven.
