Takashi Ishii's sequel to the brutal 'Gonin' is another two-fisted mix of blood and bullets. Instead of a quintet of five desperate men, 'Gonin 2' features five very angry women, all from different backgrounds. The film begins as Masamichi Toyama, a man with a large gambling debt is tracked down by his Yakuza lenders and forced to endure a beating and the rape of his wife. Humiliated, Masamichi sets out for revenge with only a sword but events escalate as his path crosses the Gonin, five feisty femme fatales who would like nothing better than to rip-off the Mob. A highly stylised and violent crime caper, Gonin 2 retains the fluid and sensual camera work of the original adding even more perverse humour and off-beat characters to the mix making it a highly entertaining blend of genres.
