The Black Battlefront Kidnappers
Original title: Yajû gari
- 1h 23m
A small group of political radicals kidnap a corporate executive. At first it is assumed they want money, but following the groups surprising public demands, the police begin to question their actual motivation. Here the compelling drama becomes a police procedural. Feuding father and son detectives are assigned to the case, one in which the clock is ticking. Starring cultural icon Hiroshi Fujioka as the headstrong detective son, frustrated by his superiors, he is restrained from taking matters into his own hands. An intensely expressive personality, Fujioka's dynamic lead is a focal-point of the film. Set in a big city urban landscape, filmmaker Eizô Sugawa composes a tense action drama. With a distinctive personal touch, in true 70's style his mod atmospheric soundtrack pulsates throughout, generating an evocative background rhythm. Hard boiled this social crime drama is a knockout... & is Highly Recommended !!
