  • Description

    Triple bill of crime dramas directed by and starring Takeshi 'Beat' Kitano. In 'Violent Cop' (1989) Kitano stars as a renegade police officer known as Azuma who has a tendency for violence. Despite being known as rather eccentric in his approaches Azuma is generally regarded with respect by his fellow officers and superiors. However, when a local yakuza gang kidnap his sister, Azuma's violence knows no bounds as he sets about ensuring her safe return. In 'Boiling Point' (1990) Masaki (Masahiko Ono), an inept baseball player, has a run-in with the local yakuza when they threaten his coach. Determined to exact revenge Masaki sets about purchasing some guns. When he inadvertently meets with former gangster Uehara (Kitano), Masaki finds an ally who has his own reasons for wanting revenge. Together the unlikely duo take on the full might of the local criminal underworld. Finally, in 'Sonatine' (1993) Kitano stars as Murakawa, an influential gangster based in Tokyo. When he is sent to Okinawa to settle a local dispute Murakawa suspects that he has been set up. However, he decides to make the most of his time away and along with his men they enjoy their time at the beach as they wait for the inevitable arrival of their enemies.

    • If the items are in stock, we’ll aim to dispatch them within 24 hours of your order being placed. Due to the increased volumes of orders being received and the social distancing measures that our warehouse teams are following, there may be a slight delay with dispatching orders, and we thank you for your patience. 
    • Orders sent via Royal Mail 48® are usually received within two to five working days, including Saturdays. Due to current delays, please allow seven days for delivery.
    • Orders sent via the Royal Mail 24® service will be dispatched the same day if ordered by 2pm, Monday to Friday (excluding public holidays).
    • We will aim to dispatch pre-orders so that you receive them on the release date.
    • Where an item is 'Back in stock soon', we'll aim to receive more stock within a week and will dispatch any orders once the shipment has arrived.
    • Certain items can take longer to source than the estimated week, particularly during busy trading periods and may take longer to arrive at the warehouse. In this instance, we'll send weekly updates to keep you aware.
