Three Seconds Before the Explosion (1967) Poster

A lightning-paced 60's crime film from Japan's Nikkatsu Studios, 3 SECONDS TO EXPLOSION packs enough subterfuge and action into its 84 volatile minutes to fill out a dozen pictures made anywhere else.

| Japanese undercover agent looking for diamonds
I did find this movie quite entertaining especially considered the time it was made. There is the goverment agent "hero" that seems to have his doubt about the mission. Two well armed gangs trying to get their hands on the diamonds. And as a wild card a former agent. None of the parties are picky about killing enemies.

There is no real black and white in this movie. But mostly unpleasant gangsters that are not shy to kill and maim anyone. It is not a mindblowing or deep movie but I did enjoy watching it. but of course it does not have lots of explosions and so on as modern action movies.
