THE BLOOD OF WOLVES (2017) NYAFF 2018
Raw by the book cop is teamed with an older corrupt one just as a war between yakuza families is heating up. Mayhem results.
Odd mix of old school yakuza films and modern buddy films is a thoroughly enjoyable film that really will make you wish it was better and more hard edged (or perhaps less cliche). To be certain the film is highly entertaining and a grand popcorn film, but at the same time you're going to wish it had a tad more bite since it is so close to being great it disappoints that it misses the mark.
That said it is one of the most entertaining films at this years NYAFF and recommended.
