spaghetti samurai movies made in japan is exactly like spaghetti western made in italy, both used the similar trumpet/guitars in sound track in gun fighters/samurais duels, lot of gory bloody tomato juice. both used large fans to blow the wind dust, dead leaves, dirty costumes, low lives, scoundrels, tramps, drunks, whores, cowards, bounty hunters, assassins....whatever. usually the screenplays were 50%absurd, 50%reasonable. it already probed the hush hush homosexual taboo happened behind the walls of the shogunate castles, magistrate prefects, pimping the secret homo business from the high up by the monks. this 'sure death revenge 4' is no exception, a very messy fun with poor absurd screenplay, out-of-control going around scenario to achieve the 'what the hell? or WTF?!' clueless plot twists. and usually, the acting were marginal okay but, who cares!?
