Award-winning Japanese director Shinji Aoyama offers a fresh take on the classic gangster flick, with imaginative camerawork and stylish editing inspired by the films of Quentin Tarantino. Soon after a boxer hangs up his gloves, he finds himself the hero of a haywire plot that involves the police, the Yakuza and his kidnapped boss's beautiful daughter. Faced with a fight-or-flight decision, the boxer chooses to stay and kick butt.
