Arrow Video USA introduces NIKKATSU DIAMOND GUYS VOL. 2 (review)

Arrow Video's NIKKATSU DIAMOND GUYS VOLUME 2 set showcases two stars from the studio's contract Diamond Line of the sixties.  Akira Kobayashi headlines TOKYO MIGHTY GUY as a young man who comes home from studying in Paris to turn his parents' restaurant into an elegant French restaurant and runs into various complications from gangsters, hookers, and an ill-tempered politician.  Jo Shishido stars in DANGER PAYS and MURDER UNINCORPORATED.  In the first film, he is one of a trio of small time criminals who try to abduct a forger in order to cash in on a larger gang's operation when they steal paper for creating Japanese yen.  In the second film, a criminal organization hires ten assassins to track down the hitman who is taking them out one by one.
