Samurai way or the Highway
1 August 2012 | by See all my reviews

Highway to heaven (or hell for all I know) that is. A very OTT movie, that does not involve much acting, but does rely on a historic event (though you won't be alone if that "fact" brings up a chuckle or two, especially during the movie). The fighting is pretty good, the (obvious) CGI not that much.

Language switches between Japanese and Thai, while the story goes places you will expect it to go (no surprises there). There are of course better movies out there, but if you are a fan of "eastern" movies you can risk a look at this. Especially if you don't mind the (CGI) blood that'll spill all over your screen!
