As a correction to the previous reviewer's opinion, the DVD from the listings' Studio 'Eureka Entertainment', plays perfectly, without judder, wobble and most importantly, without any logo appearing the the films entirety.

As for the film, this is a classic James Cagney. Ok, it's in black and white and maybe the music score is a bit violin-ey/tinny, but it's a good story and there's no special effects.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Straightforward TOP 500 REVIEWER on 20 Feb. 2011
Format: DVD
James Cagney plays the part of Nick Condon, an American journalist working in Tokyo. He runs foul of the Japanese secret service by writing a story telling of the Army's ambitions to control America, China and the world. There's a couple of Judo fights, but let me tell you - Bruce Lee it ain't.

There's only the most basic of menu screens on this DVD - there's one choice: 'Play Film'. No Subtitles, or background to the movie. It's a cheap edition that could have been much better with a little bit of thought and budget. My copy had the occasional drop-out in sound which, judging by the production values shown, I was half expecting.

The film itself carries the whiff of propaganda, and typically old-fashioned portrayals of Japanese stereotypes. The settings are interesting as they seem to have been filmed on location, and the Japanese and Chinese language spoken from time to time is authentic.

Cagney's carrying quite a lot of extra weight, and seems to be doing his best with what isn't the most persuasive of scripts, probably because it's been produced by William Cagney (his father?). It's a very dated film of curiosity value only - not one of Jimmy's best.

Not recommended.

Not one of Jimmy Cagney's best films. Made in 1945 it did not have at its disposal all the details of Japan's intentions on imperialist policy. The Japanese were depicted as the usual cut-out degenerates and although John Emery produced a decent caricature, the general impression was that the producers were clutching at straws.

Bought this for my dad for a nostalgia trip. He said he enjoyed it although it does show its age in terms of the lack of believabillty in the fighting scenes.....no different though than any action movie of this era.
