Epic movie loosely based on Japanese history
5 November 2004 | by (London) – See all my reviews

In the beginning there was a very handsome, half naked man alone on a boat,

eating raw fish..., Then, there was an white bearded old teacher who'd showed the boys how to fight and said really wise things. Than, there were some nicely choreographed fights ,some gorgeous scenery and costumes, a bit of romance

ending in tears... Then the good guys took revenge on the bad guys meanwhile changing the course of history for the better. what is there not to like...?:o))) The first Martial Arts movie I ever saw at the cinema. I remember going back to see it maybe 4 or 5 times. I was about 13 years old and the only girl in the

cinema. good old days! If I could get hold of a copy I would watch this film 4 or five times more!
