Karate meets Kalashnikovs as the uncontrollable force and the immovable object are thrown together in this bloody hilarious action comedy! Hiro's a Tokyo cyber-punk Yakuza with a simple mission: smuggle a toilet made of pure heroin to New York City. If he fails his boss will stick his sword where the rising sun don't shine. Marco's a muscle mountain enforcer working for a family of ex-commandos from the Bosnian war. He's an entry-level thug with dreams of rising up the ranks. But in the Bosnian mob, promotion is spelled AK-47. When a bloody New York mob war erupts and Hiro and Marco snatch the toilet. It's worth millions – if they can find somebody who can decipher the Japanese chemistry formula. Wounded, hunted and dragging a 50-pound toilet made of heroin; they race around New York. Through sleazy alleyways, bouncer brawls, sniper shoot-outs and a biker war they're on a quest to find a Japanese chemist…

Awesome, so much better than you'd dare to expect!
So clearly not a movie with a big budget, it's still better than any B
movie. Good story, characters and thoroughly engaging. If you can
relate to anything in the movie it's even better, and more engaging. I
don't know what that other reviewers (2 at this point) are going on and
on about. It's simple. Most movies are stupid. The stupidness in this
movie is just cuz they aren't playin the smartest guys, so it kinda
makes sense. It only makes the movie better.
The characters are almost realistic…. ya! Go figure. Clearly the
writer/director knows people like the ones portrayed in the film, and
there are some crazy and/or scary dudes in the story. They act a lot
like the ones I … uh can't confirm or deny knowing 😉 The only thing
bad thing is that the bikers seem off, they're kinda whack. But there
is reason given for this early on, so…. since the rest of the movie
rocks – forgiven! It even shows functional instructions for a
rudimentary Y spliff. Amazing. Now I'm going on..
If you think it might be your kind of movie, it probably totally is.
