Every society has its own traditional values, and even criminal organizations are built on these values. Yakuza are people who are members of transnational organized crime syndicates based in Japan. Yakuza, whose reputation has managed to go beyond the borders of Japan, have always been the center of attention with their tattoos covering their entire bodies and extreme in-house punishment methods. The best yakuza movies focus on these mysterious criminals and the criminal organizations they strictly obey. And of course, those who wage war on them.
Yakuza movies, which are full of excitement and action from the first scene to the last moment, draw the audience in immediately. Yakuza movies, many of which feature famous action stars, are not among the productions that have achieved much success at award ceremonies. However, the best yakuza movies, some of which also starred Oscar-winning actors, are among the productions that the audience does not get tired of watching over and over again.
The best yakuza movies sometimes have a hero cop and sometimes a vengeful protagonist. And the best yakuza movies often feature these protagonists' battles against organized crime syndicates made up of yakuza.
