"The Shinjuku Incident" by Yojimbo

An illegal Chinese immigrant organises his community and creates a gang who can stand up to the criminals who prey on them on the streets of Tokyo. Jackie Chan attempts a more serious role in this gritty crime drama in which his trademark slapstick comedy, acrobatics and crazy stunts are glaringly absent. Instead he plays an ordinary man turning to crime as his only escape from the poverty and prejudice that threatens to consume he and his friends. It has a much darker tone than his usual projects and is certainly the bloodiest Jackie Chan film I have ever seen, but at the same time he cannot help but overcook the more melodramatic aspects of the story and his need to play the hero means the script speedily glosses over his criminal activities which means his character does not quite ring...
