When Japan is better than HK...
13 November 2000 | by (Lyon, France) – See all my reviews

Henry Sanada. Sonny Chiba. These only two names should make everyone eager to see this movie. What can I say about it ? It has no specific genre : it contains extraordinary martial arts fights, the kinds you could not find anywhere even in the best HK movies. Sanada is the hero of this story in which he fights thousand of incredible and terrific foes. It is so inventive, so creative and so funny. There a very japanese mix of genres that makes this meal extremely delicious. I don't know if many people know about this movie. It wouldnt surprise me it's not very known. But this burlesque-violent-funky-martial masterpiece is really worth to be seen !
