Richard Norton excels in fast-paced thriller!
16 November 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

With its lush locations around Phuket, Thailand, and a stellar starring turn by Richard Norton, "Sword of Bushido" is don't-miss action for adventure movie fans. As a U.S. military man with a family history of service, he's on a mission to recover and return a legendary sword to the people of Japan. He's got to keep both the prize and himself, along with his compatriots, out of danger and safe from the greedy adversaries for the sword. Norton proves again that he can play "good guys" that are compelling to his audiences in addition to the villains he has fine-tuned in movies such as "Mr. Nice Guy" and "Lady Dragon." Norton's diversity in choosing roles and his believability in either the hero or villain "niche" consistently establish him as a great lead in action movies. "Sword of Bushido" is another example of superior entertainment from a terrific actor!
