talk about low budget
29 January 2004 | by See all my reviews

I didn't really know what to expect from this movie except it obviously had samurais and there may be a lot of gore. Well after seeing it I was very disappointed that I payed $16 bucks for the DVD, because I felt rather ripped off (although I should be lucky that I didn't pay the $19.99 that I see it listed as in many other places).

The only "gore" in the movie is the beginning when some chick gets cut in half, but even then it's so damn cheesy looking it becomes rather pointless. I think it would have been better without the cheesy-looking mannequin. Other than that, we see a lot of blood, especially towards the end.

I give credit that the director does have ideas and his mind set in the right place, but the script and directing definitely needed a lot more work. The hand-held cam really wasn't doin' it for me and the dialogue was just horrible.

As for action, it is decent for its budget, but the choreography could have been executed a lot better. It doesn't look like they practiced much. I wouldn't recommend this movie unless you can get it for $5 bucks and have an appreciation for incredibly cheesy low-budget flicks. I gave this a 5.
