there's a lot wrong with this movie but i still liked it...
27 April 2010 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

The cons out way the pros, but i respect the director's vision and the fact he had a go despite having a lame script, awful actors and no budget...'A' for effort anyway...

Its typical revenge fare and the blood and violence factor is high (maybe thats why i liked it?!)...there's a lot of samurai lore involved yet it appears most the actors have no martial arts abilities...i may be mistaken, since I've never heard of any of them, but usually its easy to tell the difference between someone who has learnt to throw a punch or kick or swing a blade in front of the camera and someone who is a trained martial artist. And only one dude here looks like he knows what he's doing but since no-one else does, he has to hold back from actually swinging his sword properly, or make his punches and kicks look as ineffective as everyone elses...either that or they were using real swords that were super sharp and so were afraid to swing them with any kind of real force or finesse...

There's shades of lots of old Japanese samurai flicks, plus bits of Tarantino's Kill Bill and Planet Terror (especially the grainy camera effects and use of 'old looking' filming techniques), plus Ninja Scroll, Azumi, Versus and possibly Shinobi, but its not as good as any of them...still, it was entertaining, and there's nudity and blood, so it wasn't all bad!
