I finally got around to watching Yakuza Weapon.

Holy balls!

It dragged in places and the tonal shifts were off-putting at first, but once I understood what the filmmakers were doing (RE: live-action anime / manga), I fell in love with this beast of a movie. More times than I can count, I was surprised by the "Did they just do that?" moments. Also, without spoiling anything, Tak Sakaguchi (Shozo) acts his ass off near the end.
