Wreckless: The Yakuza Missions – Second Opinion

Wreckless reminds me of lesser Saturday Night Live spin-off movies like Meet Pat and Stuart Saves His Family. Often, what makes for a humorous gag in small doses lacks the depth to sustain itself for a full-length feature.

While that is admittedly over simplifying things a bit, Wreckless is proof that some concepts have their limits.

Wreckless: The Yakuza Missions – Review

The world of the Yakuza is full of honor, violence and history. Many people simply pass off the Japanese gangsters as similar to the United State's Mafia. But that betrays the deep history of the Yakuza, which some believe stretches back to the extended period of peace in Japan during the Tokagawa era. Since the services of the Samurai were no longer needed, an increase in the number of Ronin—leaderless Samurai—was seen throughout Japan. Seeing as how they were no longer under the thumb of their masters, they turned to crime. Thus the Japanese gangster was born.
