Unsettling, but ultimately unsatisfying. Full Review

Matching an aged and rugged Robert Mitchum with ultimate Japanese gangster actor Ken Takakura, The Yakuza is, frankly, a piece of masculine cinematic heaven. Full Review

A confused and diffused film which bites off more than it can artfully chew. Full Review

Rating: 2.5/4 -- A superior action movie, but all the same, it's for audiences that have grown accustomed over the last few years to buckets of blood, disembowelments and severed hands flying through the air. Full Review

Rating: B+ -- "The Yakuza" is a beautifully flawed film that nonetheless catches you off guard when you least expect it. Full Review
