Staff rating


Visitor rating
4.0 from 0 reviews

A ruthless gang in Tokyo is holding up U.S. ammunition trains and will stop at nothing to cover their tracks, including killing their own. Stack is an undercover cop who infiltrates the gang, led by Ryan's vicious crime boss. Although Ryan does not disappoint, Stack's not at his best, and love scenes between him and Shirley Yamaguchi are stilted and uncomfortable to watch. The real star in this remake of "The Street with No Name" (1948) is the Cinemascope view of post war Japan and the finale in a Tokyo amusement park.
