When an entire squad of Japanese Defense Force soldiers are cut down during a training exercise, it appears the worst is true: the Ghost, a legendary covert operative, has seemingly come back and set his targets on the force that used and abandoned him. His old comrade is now living a quiet life and trying to simply slip by unnoticed as he raises the young girl in his care, but must return to the world he abandoned to stop his former friend turned enemy.

Built around a unique fight discipline created by combat supervisor Yoshitaka Inagawa, with a script stripped back to its bare essentials, RE: BORN plays like a sort of FIRST BLOOD reflected back on itself. It’s as though Sakaguchi and Shimomura asked themselves, “What if is there is not just one John Rambo, but two… and they’re on a collision course?” Shimomura – one of the world’s most underappreciated action directors and a key member of Donnie Yen’s stunt team – shoots vicious segments with a raw elegance while Sakaguchi proves once again that his quiet gravitas makes him one of the most compelling action stars in the world.
