Writer/director/star "Beat" Takeshi Kitano returns to the gangster genre after a 10-year hiatus with an explosive drama packed with his trademark lyrical violence. As rival Yakuza clans vie for power in Japan's underworld, veteran hit man Otmo (Kitano) carries out his employer's assignments─by gun, dental drill, and even X-Acto knife─while bemoaning the new Yakuza generation's lack of honor and corporate attitude. With Kippei Shiina, Jun Kunimura. 109 min. Widescreen (Enhanced); Soundtrack: Japanese Dolby Digital 5.1; Subtitles: English, Spanish; "making of" documentary; featurettes; interviews; theatrical trailers. In Japanese with English subtitles.
