Overview
Japanese Director Takashi Ishii's brutal hyperstylish hallucinogenic "roller coaster" of a movie takes a group of five desperate men through the robbery of a Yakuza gangster and the bloody revenge that follows.

Ishii has assembled a cast of Japan's coolest actors including Naoto Takenaka ("Shall We Dance") and the legendary 'Beat' Takeshi Kitano ("Brother", "Battle Royale") and his fluid, sensual camera work creates sequences of unrivalled ballistic violence.

But what really raises this movie to a different level is the off-beat characters: 'Beat' Takeshi's sadistic portrayal of the one-eyed hitman, gay hustlers and downtrodden ex-cops give ''Gonin'' an eccentric film noir atmosphere that will blow you away....
