Black Tight Killers ★★★ Ore Ni Sawaru to Abunaize 1966

Imagine a Japanese Matt Helm movie with an Elvis impersonator in the lead. That's essentially what's going on in this gonzo adventure/comedy from the mid-'60s. Hondo (Kobayashi) is a combat photographer just back from Vietnam. He and his stewardess girlfriend (Matsubara) become involved with various gangsters in a fast-moving plot filled with such bizarre devices as Ninja chewing gum bullets. 84m/C DVD . JP Akira Kobayashi, Chieko Matsubara; D: Yasuharu Hasebe.
