Storyline

In the 17th century Japan is divided between two forces. The eastern army lead by the Warlord Tokugawa Ieyasu and the western army which fights for Toyotomi's clan. Despite wining a recent battle, things look grim for the eastern army. Toyotomi's army has a supply of modern firearms, a weapon which might turn the tides of war. Tokugawa Ieyasu send his trusted samurai Mayeda and his son Yourimune to Spain. There they are to purchase 5000 muskets. But it's a dangerous journey and there are many who plot against them. And when they finally arrive in Spain, nothing goes the way they expected. Written by Mattias Pettersson <seaman@sbbs.se>

Lovely Job
28 September 2001 | by See all my reviews

This was a really cool movie. It just goes to prove that you don't need silly litle things like continuity and scripts to make a movie. It traverses continents in seconds, people get shot and nothing happens to them, swords set on fire, samuari fight on sinking galleons, David Essex is the epitome of slimey villainy and John Rhys Davies is just the dude. I enjoyed this movie but I like s**t movies, this is the perfect example of a very s**t movie that just KICKS ASS. If you like Battlefield Earth you'll love this film, its swashbuckling, its fast, its silly, its samuaraitastic!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It also looks as if it was made in 1972
