Good martial arts action with a plot behind it.
22 August 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Given that this is dubbed and contains a number of stereotypes in it, this isn't a bad plot. I would have rated it a bit higher if the political incorrectness wasn't so obvious, with no comment on whether it is realistic or not.

The dubbing is fairly well done and is not terribly noticeable. Lots of fight scenes and other than being rather one sided in the outcome, the choreography is fairly realistic. Weapons include a scale mail cloak, Japanese and Chinese swords, knives and bayonets on rifles in addition to numerous makeshift items.

Fighters include Japanese specialists in judo, karate and sumo fighting local champions. Character development is reasonable and the invaders are put to rout. No real comic relief anywhere in this movie. Abrupt ending in the cut I saw.
