HANZO THE RAZOR 2: THE SNARE (goyokiba: kamisori hanzo jigoku zeme) (1973 JAPAN) D/W: YASUZO MASAMURA
Executive producer Shintaro Katsu returns as the tough, no-nonsence constable with an iron will (and dick). This time two comic relief sidekicks (including Keizo Kanie) help him uncover a prostitution racket run from a convent and more goverment corruption. Re-treading some of the same ground as the original, but Masamura (BLIND BEAST) dishes out enough rough exploitation thrills to keep it fast-paced and fun throughout. With Toshio Kurosawa, Shin Kishida, Hosei Komatsu, Ko Nishimura, Yoshio Inaba and Kei Sato. The print i saw translated the director credited as Kenji Misumi, this is incorrect. Another part followed.
