Magnificent flight of fantasy.
2 December 2003 | by (London, UK) – See all my reviews

I'm hurt. Five out of ten? This is a wonderful film. It starts out in an updated idiom of Sonny Chiba's best Samurai fantasies and then progressively gets more and more eccentric and mythic. It's stylishly violent in places, comical, inventive, engaging and profound. It's genuinely a film to be discovered by a discerning few. Such a film could never be made in the West because the West no longer draws on its own legends and lore and has forfeited its own Romantic visions.
