Title: American Yakuza
Starring: Viggo Mortensen, Robert Forster
In Japan they call them the Yakuza…In America they call them the Mafia…When they meet they call it War.
Viggo Mortensen (G.I. Jane) and Michael Nouri (The Hidden) star in this explosive action-thriller about the first American accepted into the savage brotherhood of Japan’s criminal underworld.
Sent to infiltrate the American arm of the Yakuza, FBI agent Nick Davis (Mortensen) rises through the ranks of assassins and is soon adopted into the powerful Tendo crime family. His work brings him into brutal conflict with not only the Italian mob, run by Dino Campanela (Nouri) and hotheaded enforcer Vic (Nicky Katt, Boiler Room), but also a hard-nosed FBI task force guided by unscrupulous Agent Littman (Robert Forster, Jackie Brown).
Caught dead center in a war between the Yakuza, the mob, and the FBI, Davis must decide what’s more important: his old loyalties or his new bond of blood.
