Sonny Chiba returns as Tsurugi, slightly more well-mannered here as befits a film that is neither as gory or as good as the original. The plot is straightforward - Tsurugi pisses off the mafia, they send hordes of goons to kill him, he kicks their asses. The film has plenty of fight scenes that are still intense and brutal, but tones down the level of animal rawness... it does offer us a few boobies in exchange, but frankly it's no substitute for a guy getting his genitalia ripped off in a fight.

Still, Chiba does kick ass, and the fight scenes are still pretty bloody impressive!
