Cops Vs Thugs DVD Review


Good Morning Lovelies,

When you hear the title, Cops Vs Thugs, you would probably think of a bad modern day gangster film set in the East End. I am right, aren’t I? Well, this is in fact not the case for this new Arrow Films release.

First released in 1975, the film was directed by Kinji Fukasaku and considered to be one, if not, his best single best film. Set in 1963, the film takes us to the Japanese city of Kurashima where a detective called Kuno lives. Faced with some of the toughest gangs around, Kuno works to restore the peace in the place he loves so much by holding nothing back and giving it his all.

What plays out on camera is a delight for the eyes to see. While it is violent and tough, the director has made his actors play out the scenes in an artistic art form that means you can’t take your eyes off them. Even for a second. Every moment has a purpose and every action has a need or a want behind it.

There so I am giving this classic…

5 Stars
