Doberman Cop Blu-ray
When rural policeman Joji Kano (Sonny Chiba) came to the meanest streets of Tokyo on a missing-person pursuit, the dismissive local cops were quick to conclude that the woman he sought was a hooker recently found burned beyond recognition. The canny detective doesn’t buy it, though, and his pursuit leads to a mysterious young singer (Janet Hatta) whose yakuza-tied management doesn’t like questions. Gritty effort from Kinji Fukusaku, based on a popular manga, co-stars Hiroki Matsukata, Eiko Matsuda. 90 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: Japanese Dolby Digital mono; Subtitles: English; featurettes. In Japanese with English subtitles.
