Toie tried to capitalize on the success of THE STREET FIGHTER franchise with tossing Sonny Chiba into THE EXECUTIONER and THE EXECUTIONER II. The first film in the short lived series is tough as nails, the second one… not so much. Director Teruo Ishii was reluctant to shoot a sequel so he decided to give the finger to the rugged aspects of the first film and instead turn it into a whacky caper film in the key of Pink Panther.
