Blue Tiger Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

In this crime thriller, a hit man with the yakuza (Japanese Mafia) is in the midst of a public execution of the leader of a rival group when a woman named Gena Hayes ([[Performer~P44539~Virginia Madsen~virginiamadsen]]) happens by with her son. The child is killed in the crossfire, and Gena is determined to get revenge. About all she can remember about the killer is he had a blue tattoo of a tiger; after she asks several tattoo artists about it, she's unable to track down the shooter simply on the basis of his body art, but she ends up getting a similar tattoo herself. She gets a job as a cocktail waitress at a bar favored by members of the yakuza, and her tattoo catches the attention of Seiji ([[Performer~P155025~Toru Nakamura~torunakamura]]), a handsome gangster. Gena is interested in him as well, and a torrid romance develops, but she doesn't realize that her new lover is the same man who killed her son. [[Performer~P44539~Virginia Madsen~virginiamadsen]]'s brother [[Performer~P44538~Michael Madsen~michaelmadsen]] makes a cameo appearance as a gun salesman. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
