569th Review - MIldly Experimental Low Budget Irony Driven Arts Film on Martial Arts - Good Fights Though!, 28 June 2014
Author: intelearts from the big screen

I watched Bushido Man with low expectations and boy, was I pleasantly surprised. This is an original film - particularly in its use of camera - it explores the action through low shot-high shot, avoids camera shake, close ups, and jump cuts, and instead actually compliments and augments what are excellent fights really well.

The plot, a pupil returns to his master to tell of his his 8 fights to master all fighting styles, is set firmly in modern Japan - each fight takes place near a city and each fight is preceded by a meal that helps our hero understand his enemy.

There are strong comedy aspects throughout in common with many martial arts, but the fights are well choreographed.

All in all if you are a fan of martial arts films this is a treat - it is not an expensive historical drama it is rather a simple tale, very well made, with surprises, laughs, and ironic twists, this is one that is a rare beast: a low budget martial arts' art film.
