FrankWatchKINOs’s review published on Letterboxd:
Please Kurosawa come back to make B-movies with Sho Aikawa these little gems are great. A neat experiment from Kurosawa, he is playing with the classic trope of "cop takes revenge on the yakuza" and he just infuse it with all that Kiyoshi style. Lots of decrepit buildings and nice long takes, you know classic Kurosawa. Also I feel the shootouts are a bit influenced by Sonatine from Takeshi Kitano. Nice credits song by Sho Aikawa.
