3 April 2019 | Falconeer
| High 80's
Highly stylized crime film that veers between sweet, sometimes saccharine romance, and gut busting violence, in the form of very graphic and bloody gun play. This unique take on the 'Yakuza' genre offers up some highly stylized 80's flash, that is reminiscent of the works of Luc Besson from that period. A hardened Yakuza gangster begins to question his life choices after a chance encounter with a childhood friend, one that has grown into an attractive woman. Much like an 80's music video, the action is fast and there is never a dull moment. Fans of the Yakuza genre should seek out this obscure film, however don't expect the dark, moody tones of the 70's films; "Heartbreak Yakuza" is colorful and at times silly, but it delivers in the violence department as it tells an interesting story of redemption.
