Trivia

The bridge-burning at the end of the film had to be shot three times, twice in long shot and once in close-up. To allow the bridge to be re-lit, it was wrapped in thick fabric from top to bottom. See more »

Quotes

Shanao: The gods of today are but fictions in form. Only a true god can save these desperate times - a true god with true power. And I am the only true power. I alone am capable of unifying this land. There are no more gods for me to revere. The only god that I worship is power itself. Gods large and small, of mountain and wood... I, Shanao, have assumed the power of these deities. Tonight, I have come to assume yours.

Ultimately Satisfying
29 August 2003 | by (www.nixflix.com) – See all my reviews

GOJOE takes a little getting used to at first, but the final result is very satisfying. The tale, about a murderous samurai who seeks to redeem himself by opposing an effeminate, but dangerous samurai, is worth more than a watch. There is a lot at stake here, from physical survival to soulful salvation. The movie may seem a bit similar to other anime-inspired Samurai film at first, but it does eventually delve into more mature/adult territory soon after.

Not to be missed. GOJOE is one of the better samurai movies to come around post-Kurosawa.
