From cult director Takashi Miike (Audition, Ichi the Killer) comes this fast paced, black humoured Yakuza movie. Following the death of his boss, Kunisada (Riki Takeuchi Dead or Alive, Battle Royale 2) embarks upon a journey of revenge against the rival gang who ordered the hit. However, all is not how it seems as Kunisada uncovers the truth behind the shady deals that exist within his own clan. Pursued by two hit men Kunisada finds himself both hunter and the hunted as cross and double cross leads to murder, mayhem and a bazooka! Cut to the psychedelic prog rock album Satori by Flower Travellin Band, Deadly Outlaw Rekka is a sensational ride with the modern Yakuza and features an astonishing performance by Takeuchi as well as an appearance by the legendary Sonny Chiba (The Street Fighter, Kill Bill).

Being somewhat of an unpredictable loose cannon that suffers from violent outbursts, Kunisada teams up with his most trusted Yakuza buddy and together they are given the go ahead to kill the rival boss of the Otsaki clan as an agreed act of retribution, but little does Kunisada know that this is a set up by the 'rival' clans (his own included) now working together, and that he is seen as an expendable firebrand.
I thoroughly enjoyed this one, it's got some lively characters, humour and plenty of visceral action.
Sure this isn't Takeshi Miike's best work, but it does exactly what it says on the tin, and although it's not maybe quite as wildly explosive or comic-booky as some of his other films (like the Dead or Alive trilogy) it still refrains from taking itself or it's subject matter too seriously, providing it's audience with a less than subtle, rock-art journey down to vengeance valley.
The film has several highlights but Kunisada storming/blowing to smithereens his enemies HQ with a rocket launcher takes some beating when it comes to lunatic, balls-out, hilarity.
Riki Takeuchi (Kunisada) also getting to show Paul Newman how to do a slightly better job at dealing with a Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid style ending.
Sonny Chiba has a brief role playing a gang boss, as does Miike regular Renji Ishibashi, both were good to see.
The Taiwan DVD, in the name of Violent Fire comes with English and German subs but nothing else. The picture quality is standard.
