The silver-haired samurai Sakata Gintoki investigates the disappearance of a legendary sword named Benizakura while his partners Kagura and Shimura Shinpachi try to find out what has happened to Gintoki's friend, Kotaro Katsura.
While the movie really begins intriguing enough and has a tension overall that is decent/good enough, it still never achieves to become great. The main actor is someone you might have seen before, he has played plenty of roles and he's doing a great job here, trying to elevate the material.
But the David vs. Goliath thing isn't as well executed as it could be. The movie trying to be a bit more clever than it actually is. Even the ending can't change this. I liked it, though I'm guessing that some might find it even more disappointing than the film up to that point. Still the acting and the tension are good and I have seen worse thrillers.
