    2/5 perchè è sempre bello vedere i giappi che si uccidono

  2. Dominic Simard-Jean's rating of the film Sympathy for the Underdog

    Everything i'm looking for in cinema is in this.

  3. Nick Schwab's rating of the film Sympathy for the Underdog

    With brash characters and gritty directing, this is a fun albeit thin film. There's no story to speak of, as it's all about the plot mechanics of a revived gang gaining territory and seeking revenge on the larger gang that wronged them. Some good action and machismo goes a long way in this piece of Japanese grindhouse. Moreover, like all of the Kinji Fukasaku's films that I have seen, the ending is kickass.

  4. Jeremy Ashlyn's rating of the film Sympathy for the Underdog

    Noir I'd like you to meet the yakuza. The Japanese equivalent of Jean-Pierre Melville. Whatever happened to Samurai films? Here ya go.
