Shinjuku Incident Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
Wow, this was a very intense drama. Not as much all-out action from Jackie Chan though. It portrayed such aa dramatic side to Chinese immigrant life in Japan. I was completely stunned while watching this movie. I couldn't watch the extra DVD, though, because it was in region 3.

Strangers in a strange and violent land Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
In "Shinjuku Incident", poor but content farmer Steelhead (Jackie Chan) leaves his home in northeastern China and travels illegally to Tokyo in search of his long-lost girlfriend. In the confusion when he washes ashore in Japan he loses his identity papers, so he is stuck in this alien country, where he eaks out a living on the wrong side of the law yearning to gain legitimacy. However, he and his Chinese pals, out of self-defense, are forced to become enmeshed in the turbulent turf battles of the Yakuza underworld. Once Steelhead manages to gain control of the Kabuki-cho district, he takes a hands-off approach to managing his Chinese supporters while he develops a legitimate business selling farm equipment. However, the greed of his Chinese troops leads to retaliation from rival Japanese gangs and Steelhead is drawn back into a war he never sought.

With several interesting subplots featuring a terrific supporting cast, including Daniel Wu, Lam Suet, Fan Bing Bing, Takenaka Naota, and Xu Jing Lei, "Shinjuku Incident" delivers action-packed and compelling viewing. The movie is not flawless; it becomes aimless for a few scenes after Steelhead gains power. And Daniel Wu's role in the film's second half is too closely patterned after Heath Ledger's role as the Joker. However, everything boils to a gripping, blood-soaked climax. Fans of action films definitely should not miss this one.

Fantastic Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
Do not expect Jackie to do his usual tricks but rather enjoy him in his most dramatic role todate. Firstly playing a simple tractor repairman/farmer and then becoming an accidental Yakuza enforcer. But this enforcer (still a little naive) will later learn that in a world of underbelly connections, money & power will lure even the most hardworking, honest & ordinary people into its ugly business of drugs, illegal dealings, corruptions & run-ins with the law.

A special mention to Daniel Wu who did a fantastic job as the poor, timid illegal immigrant always at the wrong place, at the wrong time. His turn-around makeup (absolutely like second skin) was really amazing!

Hats off to the director who maintained the 4 different languages in the dialogue (Japanese, Mandarin, Cantonese & Hokkien) without which the script would not have gone very far. Don't worry, the English subtitles are great. A note of caution to a couple of torture scenes, upsetting but still essential. Well done!
