Beautiful looking series entry
10 February 2002 | by (Oakland CA) – See all my reviews

Saddled with one of the series more arcane plots, Zatoichi Challenged makes up for it by looking absolutely stunning. The colours are bright and crisp and full advantage is taken of the Panavision lens. Add in another great score from Akira Ifukube and you've got one of the best of the Zatoichi flicks.
