I'll have a slice
5 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I could summarize this flick for you, but, I'm not going to do that. Basically, you wouldn't be reading this if you weren't a samurai flick fan. And if you aren't, then this Mikogami Trilogy is a good start (Lone Wolf and Cub also a good start).

What gets my blood pumping in these films and keeps me plastered to the seat is the non-stop jams. How can you have a action hero without a theme song? Where as Trail of Blood represents a softer side of Jokichi, we are given more of adventure into the hardcore drifter side of the man worthy of that cool 70's beat.

Other's say this one lacks story. I disagree. There's a great story here which further develops the overall character of Jokichi the Drifter. And even though I did not like the reverse sword fighting as much in Trail of Blood, Fearless Avenger definitely made me dig it a whole lot more.

Contemporary directors and cinematographers could learn a lot here.
