    Five men, two killers, one massacre
    Certificate: 18
    Running Time: 110 mins
    Retail Price: £19.99
    Release Date:

    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 outfit and the bloody revenge that follows. Ishii assembles a cast of Japan`s coolest actors including Naoto Takenaka (Shall We Dance) and the legendary `Beat` Takeshi Kitano and his fluid, sensual camera work creates sequences of unrivalled ballistic bloodshed.

    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.
