I’m not entirely sure what the official international title for this one will be, so I’ll keep referring to this glossy action/thriller as simply “Gaiji Keisatsu” until something official comes along. Set after the Japanese earthquake of 2011, the flick follows an anti-terrorism agent as he attempts to find a bunch of stolen nuclear equipment. Because, you see, most people who steal this sort of stuff are pretty evil. So it’s only natural that someone suave and attractive and extremely deadly will be dispatched to take care of the situation. Nice.
An extended synopsis, you ask? Here you go:
After the great earthquake in 2011 in Japan, the national confidential document of nucleus energy was stolen from a university in TOHOKU. In the meantime, Japanese police catch the information that the radioactive element uranium in Korean peninsula is missing. It is rumored that someone behind the scene is planning to make nuclear bombs with the stolen document and uranium. Going forward the investigation, the police find out a trading company president related to this case, who is in truth a foreigner spy… To avoid the worst happening, now the Japanese police officer Sumimoto stands up to fight the threat of nucleus terrorism his own way.
“Gaiji Keisatsu” is apparently based on the Japanese television series “Anti-Terrorism Investigators”, which follows a group of badasses that attempt to thwart nefarious villains in a post-9/11 world. The film, which stars Atsuro Watabe, Kim Kang-Woo, Yuriko Ishida, Kenichi Endo, Machiko Ono, and Ryo Ishibashi, opens in Japan on June 2nd, 2012. The trailer, as well as the latest crop of images, have been embedded below.
