Showdown in Little Tokyo (1991) (part 2 of 3)
18. Cut to the next day. Angel’s body is being wheeled out of a church as the usual news crews and bystanders observe. Kenner is there with Murata, and he guesses correctly that a sword was used. It also turns out she would have been dead within 20 minutes anyway, due to the amount of drugs in her system. A new super drug known as “ice” is mentioned, and Murata remarks that this is “a weird part of town”. And then we move quickly to the next scene.
19. The next scene happens to be the obligatory “getting to know your partner” scene, which starts off with Kenner asking Murata why he knows nothing about his own culture. Johnny replies he grew up in the Valley, and is half-white; the most culture he’s gotten is his martial arts training. Then we get some info on Kenner. Well, I’m lying a bit, because all we learn is that Kenner was raised in Japan.
