Yakuza Weapon DVD
Working as a hard-to-kill mercenary in South America, ex-yakuza Shozo Iwaki (Tak Sakaguchi) is informed of the death of his gang boss father, Kenzo (Akaji Maro). Returning home after four years, Shozo discovers that his father's number-one man, Kurawaki (Shingo Tsurumi), has double-crossed and assassinated Kenzo, leaving Shozo not only in charge of what little remains of the Iwaki Family, but also burning with a desire for vengeance.After a titanic battle in which an entire building is levelled, both Shozo and Kurawaki are left barely alive, Shozo missing an arm and a leg. Despite his debilitating wounds, the nearly superhuman Shozo clings to life, only to be awoken in a mysterious medical facility with an M61 Vulcan cannon in place of his right arm, and a rocket launcher where his left leg used to be! Although confused by his new body and tormented by the pain it brings him, Shozo quickly learns to love his weaponised frame, and makes himself ready for a rematch with Kurawaki, who also has some mechanical improvements of his own... The team who brought you 'Versus' have returned with another hard-edged battle royale featuring tough gangsters, deadly women and cybernetic penis implants. Co-directed by Yudai Yamaguchi and Tak Sakaguchi, who between them have created crazy, action-filled comedies like Battlefield aseball, Meatball Machine, Mutant Girls Squad and Deadball, Yakuza Weapon is a wild combination of hard-boiled action, manga-style comedy and splatterific special effects.
