Synopsis
A haunted detective whose unconventional methods virtually define the term rogue cop is set up for failure when his corrupt superiors assign him the task of heading the organized crime beat in this landmark yakuza masterpiece from the director of Battle Royale and Black Lizard. His guilt at having widowed the woman who has now become his lover weighing heavier on his shoulders with each passing day, Detective Kuroiwa (Tetsuya Watari) is given strict "hands off" orders when assigned the task of cleaning up the Nishida underworld. Suddenly plunged into a far-reaching power-play conspiracy sanctioned by the police and pitting the violent yakuza gangsters against one another for a bloody battle to the death, the renegade cop finds his already-precarious situation even further complicated when he becomes romantically entangled with Keiko (Maiko Kaji), the half-Korean wife of Nishida's most notorious crime boss. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide
