The first AMG Dirty Dozen for the month of November is devoted entirely to action. Outside of one Umberto Lenzi poliziotteschi with the great Tomas Milian, it places a focus on films with a Far East bent. There’s a Chuck Norris vehicle set in Hong Kong, a classic Shaw Brothers basher with the team of Ti Lung and David Chiang and, best of all, a whole stack of Kinji Fukasaku’s Japanese gangster flicks, including reviews for all five films in the beloved Yakuza Papers series.

Note: since these capsule reviews have been penned, Schlockmania has published a full-length review for the wild Bohachi Bushido – just click on its title below to read that piece.
