Shot in cool monochrome with beguiling visuals, Branded to Kill is an effortlessly cool crime film with a jazzy score. It tells the story of laconic yakuza Hanada (aka ‘No. 3 Killer’), the third rated hit-man in Japan who takes an impossible job from the mysterious, death obsessed Misako. When Hanada bungles the hit, he finds himself the target of his employers, and a bullet ridden journey leads him to face the No. 1 Killer.
