A Very Good Action Movie21 June 2016

A very good action movie. I've watched and I am a big fan of the original Zatoichi (The Blind Swordsman) movies and TV series. Shintaro Katsu was the original and best Zatoich, however, Takeshi Kitano is pretty good as well. Highly recommended.

Awesome foreign film12 November 2015

I love this movie, it's in my permanent collection. The directing, particularly with regard to synchronizing images to the music score, is pure genius.

Outstanding (and violent)19 October 2011

Yes, this is well worth watching. It received very good reviews when it came out. The violence is stylised and not excessive; but make no mistake this film is bloody. It's also bloody good if you will excuse the pun.
