Ex-yakuza Shozo Iwaki (Tak Sakaguchi) engages in a titanic battle of revenge against double-crossing Kurawaki, the man who killed his father. After a building-leveling skirmish, Shozo wakes up with an M61 Vulcan cannon in place of his right arm, and a rocket launcher where his left leg used to be. Shozo quickly learns to love his weaponized frame, and prepares for a bloody rematch with Kurawaki, who has some mechanical improvements of his own.

From the creators of Versus and Death Trance, "Yakuza Weapon" is another outstanding and fun film that only Japan can offer. If you've seen any of the other over-the-top action films like Machine Girl or Tokyo Gore Police then you already know what to expect here. There's plenty limbs flying, heads exploding and blood spraying to please all fans. Plus there's loads of laugh out loud moments as well. It's true these kind of films are not for everyone but if you're like me and just can't get enough of them then owning "Yakuza Weapon" is a no brainer.
