Action/Adventure, Drama, Suspense/Thriller
Film student Paul Schrader hit the Hollywood jackpot with this clever blend of gangster flick and Asian chop-chop (his screenplay reportedly went for $300,000). And though Robert Mitchum is in fine form as an aging American tough guy up against the Japanese underworld, director Sydney Pollack just doesn't have the guile necessary to dignify Schrader's adolescent enthusiasms. Unsettling, but ultimately unsatisfying (1975).
