[man] At the end of
the Muromachi period,
there were many samurai
wandering in the wilderness
without a master.
The most dangerous and
unpredictable were known as
The most lethal of them
was Kuro Fukushu,
who would split a man in half
just to see
-how sharp the sword was.
-[muffled screams]
His sword killed more people
than any other weapon
forged by man.
-[woman, baby crying]
-He decimated his own village,
killing everyone in his path,
his own son.
That was the day
the sword turned black.
[pained shouting]
[man] As black as his soul.
Kuro Fukushu had lost his face.
He took his own life.
His sword was put on display
in his hometown,
as a warning to all of the cost
of lust and desire,
for war and bloodshed.
There the sword would stay
for as long as there was
a town to guard it.
[boy] You killed my brother!
Now I will kill you!
Bang bang!
[car approaching]
[car doors open, close]
[man] Smiley promised to pay us!
We had a fucking deal!
We brought you the fucking stone
all the way from Japan.
What's all this?
We delivered the package!
[ominous music]
[car engine revving]
[dramatic music]
[tense music]
[man 2] Yep.
Put it in the car.
[man 3] I fucking knew it.
Happy Birthday, Chris.
Oh, fuck.
You were supposed to pay us!
My granpappy used to say,
"The strong will take,
and the weak will break."
Break them!
[man 4] No, please no!
[hostages screaming]
[man] Smiley!
Good work.
Tell the head office,
I got this.
Take care of my stone, Ms. Fugu,
and put
the corpses in the truck.
[music continues]
[engine starts]
[rocks, metal clattering]
Who's there?
It's a kid.
Kill him!
[dramatic music]
[man whistles]
[suspenseful music]
Oh come on!
We promise,
we're not gonna hurt you.
[dramatic music]
[crashing, clattering]
[ominous music]
[intense dramatic music]
[man] Yo, guys!
I found him.
[dramatic music]
[objects clattering]
Too much noise for a small kid.
It's him.
It's fucking Rendel.
Shall I take care of it?
The stone is more important.
I'll get the car.
[clattering continues]
What the fuck?
That's one dead pussy.
[car engine starts]
[engine revving]
[tires squealing]
[gentle music]
Are you a bad guy?
Are you a good guy?
Why... I don't
remember how I got here.
I ran away from the orphanage.
Do you have any kids?
You could be my friend,
you know.
You don't talk much, do you?
[helicopter blades whirring]
[woman over PA]
Doctor Smith, you are needed.
Doctor Smith please check
your messages.
Thank you.
[man] Are you alright?
[dramatic music]
[tense music]
This Rendel is hurting us.
We have to put a stop to it.
We have troops.
I am talking about
the morale of our people.
One of our men ran away tonight!
He ran away instead of fighting.
We caught him.
Then let's teach him a lesson.
Let's teach everyone a lesson.
Get the cage ready.
[door opens]
Ladies and gentlemen,
last night,
there was an attack
on our beloved organization.
And one man,
one coward,
fled the scene.
He ran away!
Like a little rat!
Leaving his brothers
to fight his fights.
Here at Vala,
there is only one rule.
We do what we have to do.
And if we do not
you will face me...
in the cage.
Only one man
will leave this cage alive.
And now!
[men cheering]
[cage rattling]
Our commander,
our supreme leader,
Christopher "Smiley" Cox!
[men cheering]
[dramatic music]
-Stand up, rat!
-[cheering stops]
-Stand up!
[men jeering]
[men cheering]
On your knees, boy!
The strong will take,
and the weak will break!
[bones snap]
[men cheering]
[cage rattling]
And the winner by a clean kill,
Cristopher "Smiley" Cox!
[men chanting]
Smiley! Smiley! Smiley!
[tense music]
[somber music]
[heartbeat thumping]
[girl] It's time.
[sound distorting]
[heartbeat thumping]
[distorted whispering]
[music box playing]
[girl whispers]
It's all your fault.
[muffled woman screaming]
[music box continues]
[muffled woman screaming,
-[woman whispers] Give up.
-[woman screaming]
[dramatic music]
Gert, Horst.
You have my attention.
What do you want?
We have a new batch.
We need a guinea pig.
You have a guinea pig,
in the cage.
Fugu. Bring him.
No, no, no, no, no, no.
What is the problem?
We need a good body.
-Excuse me?
-Not broken...
See who we have
in the recruit section.
And make sure
they have no family.
Okay, no family.
[whispers] Fuck's sake.
[indistinct chattering]
Ladies and gentlemen.
This problem
affects the entire community.
A masked terrorist
beating up innocents,
I understand he only targets
Vala Corporation.
And what when
he runs out of Vala targets?
Where will he hit next?
Retirement homes?
Soon no one will be safe.
He must be stopped.
Rendel did bring injured boy
to the hospital last night.
I rest my case.
He has already
hurt an innocent boy.
The people of our beloved city
will not stand for this...
vigilante's violence.
Thank you ladies and gentlemen,
that's all we have time for.
Good day.
Excuse me, Mr. Cox.
NH25 will be
soon available here.
I would like to get some data of
the countries already using it.
Sorry, miss..
Just call me Nina.
You ask
a lot of questions, Nina.
Our lists are confidential.
I'm sure you understand.
[tense music]
Good day.
[dramatic music]
[door opens]
How is it?
And can we open it?
Without the code?
We need to run some tests.
What kind of tests?
First of all an x-ray.
To see what's inside.
I sincerely hope
we know what is inside.
We just need to open it.
-Keep me posted.
-Of course.
[door opens, closes]
[keyboard clacking]
[phone ringing]
I'm still working
on that Rendel story.
I may have something for you.
You know this man?
[Nina] Yeah! Kurikka.
He is a former Vala crook.
Gone missing long time ago.
There is something going on
in the Vala Corporation.
Just keep the angle on Rendel.
A poor man's Dark Knight.
That's what people want.
[intense dramatic music]
[music continues]
And after my parents died,
I've been trying to find
my place in the world.
-I tried filmmaking and--
And now a little...
of my story.
Or should I say our story.
is the late, great, Edward Cox.
My grandfather.
Founder and the creator
of our fine organization.
He was a Gaijin.
A Westerner.
A Yakuza.
He single-handedly defeated all
the heads of the rival gangs,
and he was given one of their
most valuable possessions
as a token of
their appreciation.
He was possessed with the idea
of living forever,
and he moved to America
where he believed
it might be possible.
Surely he is a man
enough of an inspiration
for any aspiring entrepreneur
to sacrifice himself.
Don't you think?
Yeah, absolutely.
I'm so glad you agree.
[muffled shouting]
[tense music]
[Smiley] Sorry about that.
Eggs, omelet, and all that.
[Smiley sighs]
[music fades]
[ominous music]
Mixture number 42.
[timer ticking]
[shouts, wheezes]
[gasping, panting]
Good morning.
How do you feel?
[grunts] Thirsty.
Feel like...
feel like...
feel li...
[coughing, gasping]
[dramatic music]
[flesh squelching]
[music stops]
You have...
to get the dosage right!
We do not have much
of the original serum left.
Without the formula it is just
boom boom in the dark.
The scientists who created this
are long dead.
Do we understand?
Get them to the lab,
put a guard on the door,
and do not let them out
until they've got it right!
Grandfather, give me strength.
I'm surrounded by idiots!
[message beeps]
Rendel will be aiming
to intercept.
So stay behind the van
and do not hesitate to shoot
anything that looks
out of the ordinary.
Take my car, okay?
All right boys, let's go.
[tense music]
[car engine starting]

[dark dramatic music]
[brakes squealing]
[suspenseful music]
[groaning, coughing]
[blade slices]
[men laughing]
It wasn't that hard.
[heartbeat thumping]
-[muffled alarm blaring]
-[girl] Kill them.
[distorted voice] Kill them.
[girl whispers] Kill them.
[distorted voice and girl]
Kill. Them. All.
[intense music]
[bones snap]
[grunting continues]

[grunting continues]
[music fades]
[dark music]
[grunting on video]
He must be on drugs.
If he is,
I want to know what it is.
If it can be made,
it can be sold.
And I want to know
what that fucker is on.
[sirens wailing]
Rendel, the masked terrorist,
strikes again.
This city is not safe.
I'm telling you, it's not safe!
Public safety.
Now he...
is your problem.
He seems to only hurt your men.
Every election needs a hero.
You can't have a hero
without a villain.
Elections are not cheap.
is public safety.
By the way.
A name popped up from your list,
a man named Kurikka.
-He is coming to town soon.
He's a dead man walking.
[man over PA]
Train from [indistinct]
arriving now at track one.
Have a pleasant day.
Please watch your step.
Home sweet home.
Opportunities in the air!
[man speaking indistinctly
over PA]
I see.
Might we be
going for a ride, perhaps?
[man over PA]
Have a lovely day.
What do you say?
Drinks on me! Huh?
[somber music]
[flame whooshes]
[mysterious music]
So, does he remember anything?
No, he doesn't remember
Do you think it will come back?
Eventually, I believe so.
By the way, the Vala Corporation
will cover any expenses,
after all,
it did happen on our property.
Very generous of you.
It's a least I can do.
After all,
it's only money.
If more people would be
inclined to do so.
-Can I see the boy?
-Of course. This way please.
[reporters shouting questions]
[woman] Did Rendel bring
you to the hospital?
-Were you afraid?
-[woman 2] Excuse me!
Ladies and gentlemen,
please, please! Shh.
Calm down, please.
We here at the Vala Corporation
are doing everything we can
to get this boy's life
back on track.
He's an orphan, like me.
I've taken a very personal
interest in the matter.
In fact,
I've filed papers
to legally adopt him as my own.
[reporters murmuring]
[man] So you don't remember
anything from that night?
No. Nothing.
There is something familiar
about you.
Ha! [chuckles]
You see! He thinks
I'm his father already, eh?
[reporters murmuring]
[Smiley] Thank you.
Thank you so much.
[ominous music]
We have to do something
about this kid.
Before he squeals
like a little pig.
[car engine starts]
[music continues]
I thought I might find you here.
You saved him.
Didn't you?
Why are you doing all this?
Fighting Vala.
Saving a kid.
Okay. Great.
Do you know this man?
Small-time crook.
Embezzled money from Vala.
He is back in town.
A couple of Vala thugs took him
and drove away.
And I think he's in danger.
[suspenseful music]
Good evening, ladies.
[Kurikka] I don't really
appreciate waiting.
I'm a busy man.
I got places to go, you know.
Things to do.
Then we won't
keep you any longer
than we need to.
I've been here before.
I can get you the money.
It was a personal loan
between me and Erola.
I'll pay it back.
I just need some time.
I don't need money.
I need loyalty.
[Kurikka] You think beating me
will make me loyal?
-We're not going to beat you up.
-[Kurikka] No?
I... don't understand.
[dark music]
We're not going to beat you up.
We're going to kill you.
-500 volts.
[electricity crackling]
Oh, shit.
[Smiley] He's still alive.
Let's get him 700 volts.
If you want me to die, just ask.
-I can do that.
In some 40, 60 years.
[Horst] 700.
[electricity whirring]
[electricity crackling]
[music fades]
He's dead.
[Smiley] Give him the shot.
Mixture number 51.
[dark music]
[timer ticking]
[groaning, gasping]
How do you feel?
-[Kurikka] No.
Can I watch some...
Road Runner cartoons?
Loved them as a kid.
That was some very funny shit.
This is the one.
How long before we can
get underway properly?
Raising sub-zero
temperatures cannot be rushed.
In time.
48 hours.
Let's get on with it.
What about me? Can I go now?
[ominous music]
This time we're gonna kill you
in the old fashioned way.
[car approaching]
[car engine starts]
[tense music]
[chains rattling]
[crow caws]
So my grandfather
used to tell me stories
about days like these.
So now, here am I,
upholding the family tradition.
Take a very deep breath.
So you get
the full experience, huh?
[camera shutter clicking]
[Kurikka screams]
[camera shutter clicks]
[footsteps receding]
[car door opens]
[car door shuts]
[car engine starts]
[ominous music]
[Smiley] Let's do this!
[dramatic music]
They say you should never kick
a man when he's down, eh?
[Smiley shouts]
But in my book,
that's when you should kick him!
You got a very
annoyingly hard head.
I wonder if your eyes
are so resilient, eh?
[music intensifying]
[sirens wailing]
[Smiley growls, grunts]
[sirens approaching]
[siren stops]
-Check the docks.
-[indistinct radio chatter]
[water splashing]
[indistinct radio chatter]
[man on radio] Do you copy?
Was it Rendel?
-It was him.
-[water splashing]
[coughing, sputtering]
[girl and distorted voice]
Kill him.
[distorted voice]
He is one of them.
Kill him.
[girl] Kill him.
[distorted voice] Kill!
Stop that! It's me! It's me!
[distorted voice] Kill him...
[heartbeat thumping]
[heartbeat fading]
Next time, try to save me
before I'm dead!
[dramatic music]
This is your base of operations?
A bed?
A binder?
A lot of money.
More than a lot.
What's this?
You can't beat the Vala
organization with this!
I heard Smiley say something
will happen in 48 hours.
And it's...
That was last night so,
it's like 38 now.
You need to tech up.
There's a world of intel
one can gather online.
For a modest fee,
I can hook you up.
Buy the hardware,
set up the software,
and kick down some firewalls.
Better hardware than that.
I will also need a car,
to pick up all this stuff.
We can't have any deliveries
in here.
You will also need a gear up!
Training equipment, weapons,
trackers, climbing hooks,
alarm system,
remote cameras, a drone,
smoke bombs, scuba gear,
medical supplies.
I think they've covered
the whole area by now.
There's nobody down there.
The current took him?
With the weights you described?
It could have
been a college prank.
Or an artsy photo shoot.
This is Smiley Cox.
That could be anyone.
Look, I know what I saw.
First there were
four men, then three.
They pushed a man into
the lake
with a ball and a chain
on his leg.
These pictures show only
that there were men here.
And that's not a crime.
Personally, I think you've seen
too many black and white movies.
Ball and a chain? Really?
[dark music]
Okay, look at this.
Entertainment system. Huh?
And with this,
I can access all the public
surveillance cameras
near the Vala headquarters,
and some of the private ones
that don't have a proper
And of course
the normal TV transmission.
Okay, look at this.
Rendel mouse,
bobble head,
A web store with all this
will be good PR for you.
Okay, come here.
You're gonna love this.
This is for you.
Your basic point
and pull the trigger stuff.
Of course I had to buy the car.
I told you I couldn't have
carried all this stuff
from the store.
I got us a great
sponsor deal with it. It..
[anticipatory music]
-Oh, okay.
This is much worse
than I expected.
[tense music]
Take care of the cameras.
Vala tested NH25
in Third World countries.
With people.
Governments love it.
It raises productivity.
And it really cures
the common cold,
Asian flu,
all of them.
But only if you keep using it.
If you don't...
If they start
selling NH25 here,
we will all
become users in no time.
[ominous music]
[Smiley] Hey.
Hey, you.
Remember me?
You brought me all the doctors.
[Smiley] And now,
I've brought you
a little gift.
[boy] What is it?
Just a keepsake.
Something I've had
since I was a little boy.
Just like you.
[boy] A sword?
[dramatic music]
That's not just any sword.
When the atom bomb
hit Hiroshima in 1945,
this kabukimono sword
was on display there.
It was the only thing
that survived the explosion.
Legend says that the sword
had killed so many times,
that it just grew stronger
in the Hiroshima blast
and anybody holding it
would get more and more powerful
than you can ever imagine.
What happened to it?
It was too dangerous.
So they set it in a big rock.
Made of lava.
So no one could get to it.
It's really cool.
My grandfather made it for me.
I felt
like I belonged somewhere.
I'm giving it to you
so you belong somewhere too.
Thank you.
It's okay.
[ominous music]
[Nina] Is that Smiley?
[Smiley] How's the memory?
Anything coming back?
[Smiley] Some things are
best left forgotten.
[sword clatters]
I hope you didn't break that.
Break them!
[dark music]
[heart rate monitor
beeping quickly]
[Smiley] You're sweating.
You're sweating, boy.
I'm in pain.
Shall I take the pain away?
[intense music]
[monitor beeping faster]
[people gasping]
-[music continues]
-[man] Whoa!
[monitor beating faster]
[monitor flatlining]
[alarm beeping]
[music fades]
[dramatic music]
[monitor flatlining]
[alarm beeping]
[somber music]
Check the levels.
[alarm fades]
[music continues]
Very sad, very unfortunate.
In the short time
I knew the boy,
we became very close.
It's a huge personal...
[electricity zapping]
What are you doing?
You don't know how half of that
works. It's complicated stuff.
[Kurikka] Okay, maybe
not that complicated.
Stop, you're not thinking.
It's this, isn't it?
You want to avenge their deaths?
I died twice this week.
I want revenge too.
You can't serve revenge
all steamed up.
with your revenge, that kid
can get some justice too.
And justice is all
anyone can have.
No one can bring back the dead,
not even you.
[Smiley] Have we taken
care of everything?
Stabilization of
the catalytic elements?
-Fluctuations in the current?
-Yes, sir.
All done.
We're all set for tonight.
And remember,
we only have one...
[mysterious music]
[machines beeping, whirring]
[dark music]
[upbeat rock music]
[indistinct singing]
[computer beeping]
[music fades]
I'm telling you,
this old school gangster shit
will be the end of Vala.
I hear you.
We could afford...
high-tech surveillance system,
instead of just three guards
with walkie-talkies.
Especially tonight with
a new shipment coming in.
And the back door where those
idiots cut the alarm
to get some smokes.
Now anyone could walk
straight in from there
and no one would notice.
You think she bought it?
Every word.
[ominous music]
What is that for?
It's a hyper syringe.
Very strong narcotic.
Will put anything
to sleep for two hours.
Why do we need that?
Just in case...
the subject, well...
is cuckoo.
The subject is my grandfather.
He's not gonna be cuckoo.
Just in case.
[music continues]
[machine beeps]
[machine whirring]
[static skipping, buzzing]
[music continues]
[machine buzzes]
[beeping, whirring]
[Horst] Stabilize!
[machine beeping steadily]
Starting up katalysator!
[machine whirring]
[music intensifies]
[whirring powers down]
[music continues]
[low tense music]
Hey, look at this.
Sneaking into
the Vala headquarters?
That can't be good.
[music continues]
Evidently there's
a one woman attack
against the Vala going on.
You won't make it!
It's on
the other side of the town.
I'll drive you!
[rat squeaking]
It's time to put
our car into use.
Wait till you see it.
[dramatic music]
What are you waiting for?
Come on!
[Horst] We still need
to run some tests.
[Smiley] Is all this...
really necessary?
It will take some time until
his body function properly.
This machine
is the only thing
keeping him alive.
I am so...
honored and proud to meet you.
I am your grandson,
Christopher Cox.
[ominous music]
[Edward] So?
I believe this...
belongs to you.
I used to sleep with this,
as a little boy.
It made me feel like I was...
not alone in this world.
Like I belonged to something.
You are finally here.
My flesh and blood.
I kept this close to my heart,
all these years.
And now
I'm giving it back to you.
It's yours, Grandfather.
[music continues]
Grow up.
Do you have it?
Do I have what?
have it?
Yes, Grandfather.
I have it.
It's on its way.
-[man] doing tonight then?
-[man 2] Okay.
Right, boys?
-We're winning.
Hey, that's not cool!
Pay up!
-What the fuck?
-[man 4] You are stealing!
[door opens]
[ominous music]
Sooner than we thought.
Make sure we can see her face.
People still killing each other?
Of course.
Waging wars?
And we continue to make money
from all of this?
In abundance.
bring me my Muramasa katana.
[dramatic music]
[dramatic music]
It's just as I remember.
Frozen in time.
Just like me.
We have tried so many ways
to open this stone.
Every one has failed.
And I fear,
if we use only force,
we will damage the sword.
What do we do?
My blade.
[music continues]
[blade slices]
[Edward grunting]
[music continues]
[Edward grunts]
I am...
very tired.
Nothing has happened!
[Edward groaning]
It will.
give it...time.
Very well.
Get this to my office.
[mysterious music]
[music continues]
[man in distance]
What the fuck?!
You are stealing!
[crashing, shattering]

I can take him.
He's just one man.
One man that won't fucking die!
-Double the guards!
-Yes, sir.
[tense music]
[bright music playing]
[music fades]
[window squeaking]
You're with him, right?
He needs help.
[tense music]
[chicken clucks]
We found him.
-Aisle 26, second floor.
Our men are dropping
like flies.
All men aisle 26,
second floor! Now!
[dramatic music]
[music continues]
[grunting continues]
[bones snap]
[music fades]
[phone ringing]
Police Chief Hendriksen
There's a big shootout
at the Vala headquarters.
You need to go there now.
Rendel has
attacked Vala headquarters.
You're welcome.

You let him escape?
He wasn't trying to escape.
He came straight at us.
Why would that fucker continue?
What else is there?
Except my grandfather. Hmm.
[man, muffled] You can run,
but you can't hide.
[dark tense music]
[liquid trickling]
[body thudding]
will take...
and the weak...
will break!
[bones cracking]
[Edward shouts]
[dramatic music]
-[Smiley] Grandfather...
-I'll get help.
This is all your fault.
This is good shit.
Would you like some more?
[distorted audio]
Not so fucking
dangerous now are you, Rendel?
[ominous music]
[audio muffled]
[audio returns to normal]
[music continues]
So basically,
you're just a man.
Just a man.
Then how does he fight
like this?
Is it something to do...
with this funny mask?
[Gert] We will see.
-Oh, I got some news for you.
-Nina, shut up!
It is all over
the fucking internet!
You breaking and
entering into Vala office!
You're fired!
-No buts.
Just get your stuff and leave.
[low tense music]
[dramatic music]
[saw scraping]
[Smiley] Anything?
Not a mark.
What on God's Earth
is this made of?
[muffled whirring]
[Rm] Marla.
-You were my daughter's hero.
...were your daughter's hero.
You lost your mind.
You know that? Crazy.
[dark music]
You were
supposed to protect them.
All your daughter's hope.
And admiration?
I can't die.
But you,
on the other hand.
[dramatic music]
Whoa, whoa, whoa.
What's going on?
[Horst] He's...
He's changing somehow.
[distorted audio]
What was that?
I don't know.
How about an educated guess?
[inaudible whispering]
two people...
one body.
So he's got a split personality,
has he?
No. It's something else.
[dark music]
What gets
your party started, Rendel?
What makes you tick?
How do I find out...
who you...
really are?
I understand pain.
get the cage ready.
Let's show Mr. Rendel...
some pain.
[sirens wailing]
[dramatic music]
[indistinct radio chatter]
Rendel! Get out of there
or we will attack!
[door opens]
[intense dramatic music]
Get your mask off. Now!
You're absolutely right.
Why would I hide
this handsome face?
[low tense music]
Let's see what
this baby can really do.
[music intensifying]
[Smiley shouts]
[indistinct ghostly whispering]
[dark music]
[music continues]
So Rendel.
Terribly sorry that
there's not more of an audience
for our little soire.
But you killed and maimed
most of my men.
Take her!
And you...
really don't think I didn't know
that you are Catherine Fukushu.
of Kuro Fukushu.
The head of
the Tsujigiri samurai.
You don't know the power of
that katana.
I think I'm getting
the measure of it.
It is dangerous.
It must be destroyed.
It is a disgrace to my family.
[Smiley] Family? I know
nothing about family.
But power...
power is something
I know all about.
[men chanting]
Smiley! Smiley! Smiley!
Only one man
will leave this cage
alive tonight.
[men cheering]
[cage rattling]
[Smiley] You cost my corporation
millions of dollars!
-He's no hero, look at him!
-[men laughing]
Rubber boy!
[dark music]
[heartbeat thumping]
[Smiley] Good morning.
Wakey wakey.
Rise and shine!
[Smiley grunting]
[men shouting, booing]
Shut up!
Now that's more like it.
That's the fighter
I was looking for.
[Smiley groaning]
You... starting to fuck it...
[dramatic music]
[Smiley grunts]
[sword slices]
[Marla groans]
[men cheering]
[men chanting] Kill! Kill! Kill!
[Smiley grunts]
[chanting continues]
[dark music]
[music box playing slowly]
You were
supposed to take care of them.
This is all your fault.
This is all your fault.
Your fault!
[whispering] Your fault.
[intense dramatic music]
[men chanting] Kill! Kill! Kill!
[dark music]
[intense dramatic music]
[men chanting] Kill! Kill! Kill!
[Smiley] Fuck!
[music continues]
Who's the superhero now--gah!
[Smiley shouts]
[blade slicing]
[music fades]
[Smiley grunts]
[blade slices]
[dark music]
Give up.
[Smiley] And they say...
that nothing...
can penetrate his mask.
But nobody has tried it
with this...
[dramatic music]
[blade slices]
[Smiley grunts]
[somber music]
A winner...
by a clean kill.
[music continues]
[dramatic music]
Thank you.
I'll be sure it doesn't end up
in the wrong hands again.
[music fades]
[tense music]
Off you go!
[men shouting]
[intense dramatic music]
[anticipatory music]
[dramatic music]
[man singing]
