6 Black Lagoon Black Lagoon

Oh my god, yes! Give Dutch a bigger role in it though, because he's great. Scale Rock's role back a little accordingly. Make sure your Revy is actually Chinese / Asian, and kicks ass. But yeah I'd love to see the Lagoon gunboat tearing it up, and Two-Hands Revy's gunplay action for real. Throw in Eda (the American gunrunning 'nun') and Balalaika (badass Russian mafia leader), and Chow Yun-Fat as Mr. Chang, and you have a real winner, potentially...
