Storyline

Nemuri Kyoshiro, a youthful and cynical ronin with unparalleled skill, is approached by both sides in a game of corruption, ambition, and double crosses. The leader of the Kaga clan, who thinks he has killed his smuggling partner, fears that the shogunate will discover his illegal activities. He learns of evidence that will prove his guilt. Meanwhile, his partner is not dead, and, assisted by a master of Shorenji boxing, is looking for revenge and for his loot. The Kaga leader sends the beautiful Chisa to enlist Nemuri's aid. The unexpected happens: the hard-bitten Nemuri falls in love. Can he protect her, topple the criminals, and avoid the boxer's deadly skill? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Rather slow and cliched
9 June 1999 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I found this movie to be rather slow going and quite cliched. The lead character was suppose to be a loose cannon ronin, but no explanation or development was given. Other characters seemed to come and go from the story as needed to fill in the gaps, with no closure with any except those who die. As for the fight scenes, which often make up for the cliches in the typical action-type movie... well they were sadly lacking in this. The typical fight was the ninjas charging with swords raised over head and then they get killed. No fencing, just slaughter of ninjas. Save your time and see a good samurai film.
