Yakuza Weapon Delivers The Mayhem
Co-directed by Yudai Yamaguchi and Tak Sakaguchi and based on the manga by Ken Ishikawa, Yakuza Weapon will be exploding onto DVD and Blu-ray on 7 May.
Yamaguchi and Sakaguchi are the two twisted minds behind the gory mayhem of Deadball and Mutant Girls Squad. For their latest round of bloodshed and lunacy they are reunited with their partners in crime action director Yuji Shimomura, who worked on the cult classic Versus and special effects fiend Yoshihiro Nishimura, who created the stomach-churning effects in Tokyo Gore Police and Helldriver.
In Yakuza Weapon Sakaguchi plays Shozo, who returns from Japan to find his mob-boss father has been killed by his former second-in-command, Kurawaki (Shingo Tsurumi), who has seized power for himself.
When Shozo takes umbrage, he is blasted to bits and left for dead. But Shozo won't rest until he gets his revenge. He wakes up in a medical facility with an M61 Vulcan cannon in place of his right arm, and a rocket launcher where his left leg used to be!
Suffice it to say, things get bloody in a hurry.
