Yakuza Deka: Assassin - 1970 - 5/10
AKA - やくざ刑事

Undercover cop (Sonny Chiba) infiltrates drug gangs.
Main thread has something to do with smuggling marijuana from faraway Mexico.
Guess the Yakuza never heard of Thai sticks.
Despite all the explosions, shootings, stabbings, etc … film felt like a spoof.
There must have been thirty-seven plots going on, the narrative was incoherent at times.
No matter. Wild 70’s costumes, garish sets (nude marijuana orgy room a standout), amped out action sequences.
Lots of energy, lots of fun, but daffy.
