This cat is pretty cool. Look up his bio some time. He does everything. Most Americans probably only recognize him from MXC on Spike. I got into “Beat” Takeshi years ago (can’t remember how).
Violent Cop – Don’t mess with his sister. Double feature it with Kindergarten Cop.
Sonatine – Volleyball and bullets. Great mix.
Fireworks – Beautiful and violent (just like fireworks. get it?).
Zatoichi – Interesting remake of a classic. The violence is short and bloody, much like an actual sword fight would be (at least that’s how all my sword fights go).
