5.0 out of 5 stars One of the great films of the Seventies
The Yakuza is one of the great films of the seventies. Although this didn't make much noise in the seventies (despite a truly surreal promotional gimmick, `Join the Yakuza Set' tattoo transfers!), it has held up a lot better than he plethora of seventies thrillers that swamped it at the time.

Belonging to that subgenre of Americans-in-Japan thrillers (Fuller's...

5.0 out of 5 stars ONE OF THE BEST FILMS MADE, 28 Feb. 2007
You must see this film before you die, without doubt one of the finest films i've seen, slow to start with but this sets the mood of the film. Modesty, loyalty, respect, honour and restraint is what this film is about. Brilliantly acted and great fight scenes make it an all time classic for me, can't believe it's been deleted. It's as rare as rocking horse s**t so please release it again.

Yes it's dated but for me it is worth the time even just for the final fight. Realistic for a change and not like all the tripe you too often see from Hollywood.

5.0 out of 5 stars DVD Purchase, 29 April 2009
This review is from: The Yakuza (DVD)
Superb movie, one of the only realistic attempts to describe the Japanese culture of Budo and the Samurai...the sword work is exactly as it should be, (unlike the dreadful "Highlander" or "Kill Bill" movies)...

The DVD itself arrived on time and in perfect condition, I would order from this company again without any reservations...

This review is from: The Yakuza (Amazon Instant Video)
This is an old favourite of ours but we lost our copy. A bit violent in some places but also some profound moments and quite a twisted plot.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good yarn, 4 Jan. 2015

This review is from: The Yakuza (DVD)
This an old film, but still a great watch. It's a good tale, as much about the Japanese Honour code as anything else.
