Love or hate film
Gary plays the dark-haired Kenshiro, the Fist of the North Star, opposite Costas Mandylor as Kenshiro's evil bro Lord Shin of the Southern Star school. The film is based on an extremely violent Japanese manga/anime. And extremely violent describes the film well. It is definitely not everyone's cup of tea, so beware. If you're not into exploding heads avoid the film - though you'll be missing out on feasting your eyes on Gary's stunning physique! There is plenty of action, and I enjoyed it, but this is a film people either love or hate. It isn't a great film by a long shot, though the Mad Max milieu of the post-apocalyptic world the story is set in is well realised. The inevitable climactic showdown between Gary and Mandylor is a bit of a let-down since the latter is simply no match for Gary physically. Watching Gary despatch the main villain's soldiers is a lot more fun. The fight choreography was handled by Gary's trainer Winston Omega. The character of Kenshiro embodies values which Gary upholds as well, and which endeared Kenshiro to him so much that he named his son after him.
