One of the best!!!!!!!!!!!!
24 December 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What's to say. Lot's of fun. Beautifully done. One if not THE most under-rated Chambara film ever made.

If you want to know where T Miike got all his new twists for his (2010) remake of the 13 Samurai, LOOK TO FURTHER. He stole em from here including his brilliantly reviewed, "new" ending.

Brilliantly choreographed action. With one of the greatest finales in any action movie, from any year, regardless of genre.

NOT TO BE MISSED BY CAUSUAL WATCHERS OF SAMURAI FILM. And maybe a few who will be converted to devotees by this watching.

Simply, One of the best!!!!!!!!!!!!
