Synopsis by Robert Firsching
Director Teruo Ishii's sequel to his own Chokugeki! Jigokuhen (1974) once again stars Sonny Chiba as Koga, but this film's tone is completely different, replacing gritty action with sophomoric humor. The storyline concerns Koga's gang of thieves plotting to steal a priceless diamond from a master criminal, but Ishii plays the film for gross laughs as Koga puts dandruff and mucus in someone's drink, urinates to douse a fire, and breaks wind in his friend's face. Tetsuro Tanba, Mitsuru Sato, and Yutaka Nakajima co-star in this silly romp which -- although Chiba gets to rip out a man's heart at one point -- is unlikely to satisfy all but the youngest action fans.
