| Weak movie in an otherwise extreme genre...
For a movie in the extreme genre that has root in Japan, then "Yakuza Weapon" ("Gokudô Heiki") was fairly boring and uninteresting. Especially, because by comparison to movies such as "Machine Girl", to pick a single movie in the genre, then "Yakuza Weapon" seemed pointless and irrelevant.

The storyline is about a Yakuza member who returns to Japan after having served in some war in the times post World War II, and he has to fight against rival Yakuza people.

This was basically all there was to the storyline, it didn't have anything interesting to offer - unless you count irrelevant action sequences and fighting for leverage solid enough to make the foundation of a movie.

The acting in the movie was, as with other movies in this particular genre, over the top and not to be taken too seriously.

As for the effects and the action sequences, well, don't expect anything overly impressive or anywhere remotely near what you can see in other movies in the genre.

"Yakuza Weapon" is a boring movie that failed to capture my attention, and it became a losing battle to just sit through it to the end. I gave up on the movie and will not make a second attempt to finish it, because the movie had nothing to offer; weak storyline, poor special effects and a total sense of meaning to the movie.

I am rating the movie a mere 3 out of 10 stars rating, purely because of the production value of the movie and the acting - everything else was just irrelevant.
