Projection of the human failings of the director and writer
13 May 2010 | by (Pantelleria, Italy) – See all my reviews

There is always a challenge to depict historic legends in film. We all expect the film to be less than perfect, however this series about the legendary sword master is very sad, a little pathetic. they have added all sorts of pointless gimmicks, such as a magical female ninja which are quite tasteless. From what we DO know about this man, his real and actual life is exciting enough. How the producers got approval for such a poor and distorted view of this man is a question. they also seem to paint Musashi as a little angry boy tormented because his father never approved of him. Please !!! If you want to see a more honest film about Musashi you need the Toshiro Mufuni version of 1954. I wonder what has happened in Japanese culture that this poor quality series was even made.
