“Retaliation” is another Nikkatsu film from the late 1960s about Japanese mob vengeance. Following a Yakuza lieutenant after he gets out of prison, the film goes out of its way to rip the glamour out of the Underworld. This is a movie built on dirty dealings and second-hand talk. “Massacre Gun” is the far better film from the era, but I feel that this one makes for a lovely double feature. That is if you dig contemplative Asian crime movies.

The Blu-Ray comes with interviews and a trailer as the special features. The A/V Quality is typical for Arrow. You get a stunning 1080p transfer and an LPCM soundtrack. You’ve got to give it to the guys for consistency.

Release Date: OUT NOW!
