Plot Synopsis:

Beautifully restored in HD, this classic film is now released for the first time in North America on Blu Ray.
In his explosive directorial debut Japanese renaissance man-cum-comedian-extraordinaire Takeshi "Beat" Kitano plays vicious rogue homicide Detective Azuma who takes on a sadistic crime syndicate only to discover widespread internal corruption in the police force. Facing criminal charges for his unorthodox "Dirty Harry" type methods, Azuma finds himself caught in a web of betrayal and intrigue that sends him on a bloody trail of vengeance. But when his sister is kidnapped by a sadistic drug lord, Azuma's tactics escalate towards an apocalyptic climax.

New Collector's Edition art by Benjamin Marra, the influential comic creator and artist, commissioned exclusively for retrospective screenings and the Blu Ray/DVD re-release.
