Following the success of “A Gambler’s Life,” Daiei wrote one of the bloodiest and most action-packed yakuza movie for Raizo Ichikawa. After his death, the role was offered to Hiroki Matsukata, who then performed his best work in the yakuza genre and ended up making this one of the most exciting motion pictures of all time!
Synopsis: Set up to be the patsy by a rival gang, Furuta Makoto attacks the yakuza boss he thinks is responsible for his father’s murder. He then learns it was all a plot to take over his father’s turf and he seeks vengeance against the puppet master behind the entire conspiracy. His quest for justice leads him to prison where he must fend off the attack of a master assassin before he can make his escape and go after the true killer!
