| Sort of Japanese Dirty Dozen
And again not. Mostly revolving around the main character and other yakuza from his own and other gangs and their troubles in the army. It is really a strange mix. First I thought it was a comedy. Then suddenly harsh and brutal scenes appeared. After watching I am not really sure what I would describe the movie as.

But there is a nice mix for everyone but most likely also something that would make it hard to please all in the crowd. I did enjoy the movie and I am happy I encountered this movie. It is not the best movie in the world, but if you are to the somewhat strange mix the movie gives then you may very well enjoy it.

I do mostly think this movie is for people that do enjoy older Japanese movies and have seen a yakuza movie or two. I have not seen the first movie in the series but I did not feel anything missing for that.
