This is an original, rolled, Japanese B2 theatrical movie poster from 1989 for the ORIGINAL release of Violent Cop starring Takeshi Kitano.
Violent Cop (その男、凶暴につき, Sono otoko, kyōbō ni tsuki, Lit. 'That man, being violent'), also known as Warning: This Man is Wild and So No Otoko Kyobo Ni Tsuki, is a 1989 Japanese film directed by and starring Takeshi Kitano. It was Kitano's directorial debut, and marked the beginning of his career as a filmmaker.
Kitano plays detective Azuma, a Dirty Harry-type who uses violent methods when confronting criminals. After the suicide of his friend and colleague Iwaki (a vice cop who was involved with drugs), and the kidnapping of his sister by yakuza gangsters, Azuma breaks all the rules of ethical conduct. He responds to every situation with violence, and resorts to unethical methods if they produce results.
