| Standard Japanese crime drama with colorful characters
Kyohansha (Accomplice) stars Takenaka Naoto as "Carlos", a good natured yet brutal Brazillian mafioso who comes back to Japan after 8 years in Brazil to retrieve money money owed him from the Ando Yakuza gang. He ends up saving Satomi, a poor abused ramen shop waitress from her abusive husband, and she ends up tagging along, becoming an accomplice on his murderous rampage to get his money back (hence the title). The highlight of the otherwise standard Yakuza crime drama are the colorful characters, particularly the two hit men who are hired to eliminate Carlos before he can get his money back - two bleach-blonde Japanese brothers who are cold blooded killers, one of which has a habit of throwing in all sorts of jive English phrases as he speaks. Worth a look just for the hit men, I recommend it, although it isn't what I would call a "great" movie. Also of note, "Mako" (from all the old Jackie Chan movies) even makes a guest appearance as a Brazillian police agent.
