Martial arts actioner Re:Born on dual format in March

11 January 2018

Eureka Entertainment are to release Re:Born, a breathtaking, no-frills martial arts film featuring fast, furious and expertly choreographed fight sequences and starring Tak ∴ (formerly Tak Sakaguchi), for the first time on Blu-ray in the UK in a Dual Format (Blu-ray & DVD) edition in March.

Toshiro (Tak ∴, formerly Tak Sakaguchi – Versus), a former special forces operative, now lives a quiet life in the Japanese countryside. Despite his seemingly peaceful existence, Toshiro struggles to contain the destructive impulses that once made him the top soldier in an elite unit of killers. When his former commanding officer, the enigmatic Phantom (Akio Ôtsuka), comes out of the shadows seeking revenge, Toshiro goes on a kill-crazy rampage against a squad of ruthless assassins.

Utilising an unorthodox form of close-quarters combat (referred to by the director and lead actor as “Zero Range Combat”) Re:Born features some of the most stunningly choreographed martial-arts fight sequences in recent years.
