Kinji Fukasaku’s study of the fine line between cop and gangster (im)morality stars Tetsuya Watari as a would-be Dirty Harry.

Those who have come to know Fukasaku through Battle Royale may find this mid-’70s entry dated, but it remains a fine genre piece with the director’s trademark freeze-frames, frenetic camera work and violent bloodshed.
