This bizarre story begins with Reiji Kikukawa, a patrol cop who graduates with the lowest score in police academy history. Kikukawa is given an assignment to infiltrate the world of organized crime as an undercover cop – a “Mole.” His mission: to restore purity in an increasingly corrupt society. The bestselling manga, “Mogura no Uta” by Noboru Takahashi, serialized in Big Comics Spirits Weekly, reached new heights in 2014 when it was adapted to a live action film directed by the world-renowned Takashi Miike, written by the ingenious storyteller Kankuro Kudo, and starring the multi-talented Toma Ikuta as Reiji Kikukawa… Only to resurface and wreak havoc again in December 2016 with a star-studded cast!
The sequel was adapted from a volume of the original manga entitled, “Chinese Mafia Story” in which our undercover hero, Reiji Kikukawa, takes on an even more impossible mission which climaxes in a showdown in Hong Kong! The movie has it all — thrills, excitement, action, sex, romance, machismo, justice and laughs! The sky-high intensity of this monster sequel surpasses its predecessor in every way!
