Damned good movie!!!
Takeshi Kitano is about as badass as it gets & this film RUUUUUUUUUELS!! The betrayals, the paybacks. All so brutal and totally deserving. FIVE SKULLS!
This series is fantastic, and this entry is arguably the best part. Best w/ pt. 1 though.
Not 100% this fits, but it’s my favorite film trilogy so eff it. This is the highlight of the trilogy, too.
Pretty standard yakuza fare. Gets an extra star for inventive use of a pitching machine.
