Ryuhei Kitamura has recently become a God amongst directors with his innovative, sleek, Gory, evil dead style films suck as Versus, Aragami, & Azumi. This earlier effort is Goreless, low budget but still engrossingly original. Gore is replaced by smoke, anyone who gets shot (how ever many times they get shot is countless) has smoke appear from the bullet wounds. The editing reduces pace but still keeps pumping. The style is reserved to capture the longer feel of takes from westerns, many beautifully composed shots of two men versus a cool gunslinger with 2 revolvers and the traditional long dustcoat. The plot is thin as is always the case with Ryuhei Kitamura, the plot is always more a comical relief for the audience that plays in the background of amazing choreographed sword/fist or gun fights well connected together. This is just guns and some men in a remote woods with some big bad gun slinger that won't stay dead, simplistic, stylish and rare, but the net offers it. If your thinking of watching this and havn't seen Versus, go buy now.
