By   |  Feb 29, 2024

Third Window Films are bringing the 2023 Japanese yakuza action comedy ‘One Percenter’ (1%er / One-Percent Warrior) to UK Blu-ray on March 11, 2024.

Written and directed by Yudai Yamaguchi, the film revolves around a legendary, aging action film star who is drawn into the real world of violence when feuding yakuza gangs infiltrate the set of his directorial feature debut. The cast includes Tak Sakaguchi, Sho Aoyagi, Itsuji ItaoKenjiro Ishimaru, and Keisuke Horibe.

Synopsis: Action film actor Takuma Toshiro is a man with only one goal: the perfection of action film acting. But when his samurai-approach to the profession clashes with an industry addicted to wires, CGI and quick edits, Toshiro and his trusty apprentice Akira decide to make their dream film themselves.

When actual violence finds its way onto their film set in the form of yakuza mobsters looking for a hidden cache of drugs, Toshiro and Akira are suddenly thrust into action. Is this the ideal opportunity to take his “Real Action” to the next level? As lives are lost and chaos ensues, Toshiro finds that the gap between action “fantasy” and “reality” isn’t quite what he thought!
