Genre icon Jô Shishido stars in this tense and violent yakuza yarn from genre stalwart and Seijun Suzuki's former assistant, Yasuharu Hasebe. Shishido stars as Kuroda, a mob hitman who turns on his employers after being forced to execute his lover. Joining forces with his similarly wronged brothers, hot-headed Eiji and aspiring boxer Saburô, the trio escalate their mob retaliation to all-out turf war where no one will stop until one faction emerges victorious. Strikingly violent for the period and gorgeously photographed in monochrome like genre siblings BRANDED TO KILL and A COLT IS MY PASSPORT, MASSACRE GUN is a bold iteration on the genre featuring some stunning compositions and the assured direction of Hasebe.

“Massacre Gun” is cool. It’s bourbon and ice. It’s a jazz riff on the downbeat. Like many genre pictures, you know where it’s all headed, but the joy is in how it gets there. And right in the thick of it all is Jo Shishido, one of the all-time great movie tough guys, period. Shishido has it all down: the laconic, but forceful physical presence; minimal dialog delivered in a low, muttering tones; sudden and decisive action! Cool. Jo Shishido is, above all else...cool!
