Third time unlucky for female samurai
27 September 2008 | by (Beverley Hills, England) – See all my reviews

Okatsu the Fugitive is the third film in the "Ohyaku/Okatsu" series, which sees a female sword master getting revenge on people. Like the second entry in the series, this one is basically just the same idea as the first film with a different storyline. It doesn't follow on from the other two films in any way and indeed the plot line is entirely different in this film than it was in the other two and the only similarity is the lead character's name. It has to be said that this is the weakest of the three films too; as while the first two provided entertaining stories in their own rights; this one is far too muddled. The plot once again focuses on Okatsu; a "tomboy" who is good with a sword. Her father has found her a man to marry and actually she doesn't seem too upset about the situation. At the same time, a bunch of farmers are being slaughtered by a corrupt group running a tobacco smuggling ring. They're being investigated by a man who is documenting their crimes and when they find out about it, they torture him for information but get none. It's not long before he and Okatsu's mother wind up dead and she sets out for revenge.

The plot has a lot to it, although it's not really a good thing because the film feels like it doesn't really have time to get through everything. To its credit, the plot of this film is more different to the plot of the first film than the plot of the second film was, but even so; it could have done with being a bit better thought out. On the technical side of things, this is definitely a very good film however and is probably the best filmed of the lot of them. The cinematography is beautiful and the locations are all captured nicely. Director Nobuo Nakagawa also delights in showing us some great surreal shots towards the end. There's a fair amount of violence in the movie; although I would say it's not as bloodthirsty as the previous entry. Still, the blood flows and there's plenty of action. The final revenge sequence is really good and just about justifies watching the rest of the film to get there. Overall, this is still a decent film and definitely a must see for anyone that enjoyed the other two films in the series; although it is the weakest of the trilogy.
