Indeed, it is quite a nice movie. With some scenes filmed in Shanghai, I think. It was a movie co-operated by companies in Japan and China. There are some Chinese actors in the movie apart from the Japanese actors.
Ken is just a actor in a supporting role. His character is a villan one, a Japanese military officer, who is trying to sell weapons to an underground anti-government parties in China. But in turn he was cheated by a Japanese guy (that is the actor in a leading role). And this guy in turn is a hero in the movie.
Although Ken is not so involved in it, but it is good to see Ken wearing military uniform (so COOL ~!). It is totally a different look from The Last Samurai!
