Two escaped convicts (including Tak Sakaguchi, allegedly a real-life yakuza streetfighter), stumble into a gang of Japanese mobsters. In any normal Asian action flick, this would lead to your basic kung fu-infused bullet opera. Versus is all that and more. Seems the forest into which our anti-heroes have wandered is actually some mystical portal to Hell (or some other demonic extradimensional locus)--which means all the bullet-riddled victims pop right back to life and start fighting with furious zombie abandon. Part horror, part sci-fi, part kung fu, part comedy and all action, Versus is like a crazy Asian train wreck of Evil Dead, Highlander and The Killer. In Japanese with English subtitles. 117 minutes
