One of our all-time favourite gangster movies here at Twistedwing is Takashi Ishii's Gonin. A hyperstylish hallucinogenic roller-coaster ride of a movie, Gonin tells the story of five desperate men, the robbery of a yakuza gangster and the mayhem that follows. The original movie starred Naoto Takenaka and the legendary Takeshi Kitano as a sadistic one-eyed hitman. A sequel followed in 1996, with five women taking over from the five men of Gonin, but it wasn't as good as the original entry in the series.

Well we have some good news. Gonin Saga is coming to the big screen, and it's a direct sequel to the original movie. So we can ignore part two altogether! Seiji (Masanobu Ando) is a third generation "Gosei kai" gang member. He works to build up the group's strength. Meanwhile, a journalist (Tasuku Emoto) investigates a case that occurred 19 years ago. He meets Hayato (Masahiro Higashide), Daisuke (Kenta Kiritani) and Asami (Anna Tsuchiya). All Hell breaks loose. Probably. Gonin Saga opens in Japan on September 26, 2015. Trailer below.
