No Wat Back stars Russell Crowe as Zack Grant, an F.B.I. agent out for revenge. Zack's partner Seiko (Kelly Hu) is killed during a botched F.B.I operation in which Victor Salerno also died. Zack attempts to find the person behind this and goes to New York to find and bring back Yakuza assassin Yuji Kobayashi (Etsushi Toyokawa) to L.A.
