Our take

Kiyoshi Kurosawa is a deft practitioner of almost any genre, including martial arts! His action film is typically but compellingly strange, intertwined with the industrial development of the Japanese waterfront. The fights, when they come, have a sense of realism that is as unusual as it is bracing.
