Een actiethriller uit 2005 met in de hoofdrol Steven Seagal, een bekende acteur in dit genre en specialist in Oosterse vechtsporten (The patriot, Hard to kill, Out of reach). Seagal speelt ex-CIA agent Hunter, die is opgegroeid in Japan en opgeleid door een oud-lid van de Yakuza. Tussen verschillende bendes in Japan woedt een oorlog, die vooral gaat om de drugshandel. Hunter krijgt de opdracht te infiltreren in een van de bendes. Vince Leo (Qwipster's Movie Reviews) schrijft: '(...) With all of the decent qualities, this is still not quite up to the stuff that merits a recommendation for anyone who isn't a die-hard Seagal nut. Although it is violent, and quite bloody (with an especially overzealous sound department who seem to relish the fluid noises of gushing blood), it is still not all that exciting. Into the Sun may be a decent flick for Seagal, but it is still a long way from gaining him mainstream acceptance.' De dvd bevat geen extra's.

In the UK, under the Wildlife & Countryside Act 1981, it is illegal to release mink into the wild. In some countries, any live mink caught in …Read more on Wikipedia
