2023 / 85m - Japan
One Percenter poster


March 28, 2024


An entertaining action film, that has the extra benefit of being pretty meta. Fans of Tak Sakaguchi will no doubt see how this film was built around him (not unlike JCVD), though it's not essential to appreciate what Yamaguchi is doing here. The brawler scenes are cool, the cinematography is slick and Sakaguchi oozes flair. There are some badass villains too, and there is no unnecessary padding. Everything I want from a good action flick, and then some.
