Wanted to like it but....
1 December 2010 | by (Thailand) – See all my reviews

After reading all the raves about this movie I was looking forward to finally watching it. I have to admit to being somewhat let down. Mind you it is a good movie with Nakadai putting in a great performance as a haunted samurai. Maybe I have seen too many samurai or movies from the east but the story seems formulaic for me (I am also watching it over 40yrs since it was made and the movie is older then I am). I still give this movie a 7 rating as it is a good movie but there definitely are better ones. Note: I watched Goyokin after The Sword of Doom. Nakadai's performance is better in this movie but I enjoyed The Sword of Doom more as a whole.
