Another Sushi Typhoon splatterfest blasts into your home as
Tak Sakaguchi and Yudai Yamaguchi’s YAKUZA WEAPON arrives on disc in February.
Fango got the scoop on the specs and the first look at the cover art.
Well Go USA releases YAKUZA WEAPON
Feb. 7 on DVD and a Blu-ray/DVD combo pack. Based on the manga by Ken Ishikawa,
YAKUZA WEAPON reunites Sakaguchi and Yamaguchi from films like VERSUS and
BATTLEFIELD BASEBALL, and casts the former as Shozo, the son of an assassinated
crime boss who himself loses an arm and leg to the bad guys, and has them
replaced with a machine gun and rocket launcher to take vengeance. Highlighted
by a four-minute, single-take action sequence (during which Sakaguchi broke a
bone in his neck), YAKUZA WEAPON will be presented unrated with the following
• “The Making of YAKUZA WEAPON” featurette
• Director’s discussion
• Tokyo stage greeting
• Spinoff film TAKUZO WEAPON
Retail prices are $24.98 for the DVD, $29.98 for the combo.
