Good all round line up
19 May 2004 | by (London) – See all my reviews

Good film from Fukasaku and you can see the style getting closer and closer to the seminal jingi naki tatakai (Battle without Honour) series. Many of the elements are there such as the documentary type style narration, the newspaper clippings etc. All these elements make it appear 'real' or jitsuryoku. Still have the concept of jingi and the whole ninkyo chivalry thing here though.

Tomisaburo Wakayama does indeed steal the show but he was not Zatoichi. The mistake is easily made as they are brothers. Zatoichi is played buy Shintaro Katsu, he never quite becomes this fat. Tomisaburo is also known for the kozure okami (Lone Wolf) series, which are also a joy to watch.
