In the scene where Toramaru fights the nunchaku master, he changes into yellow trainers and uses yellow nunchaku. This is a tribute to Bruce Lee, whose signature yellow jumpsuit from Game of Death can be seen under Toramaru's kimono.See more »

A martial artist returns to his master after collecting scrolls from the great fighters he had defeated and tells his story., 6 January 2015
Author: pal05052003 from Phnom Penh, Cambodia

This is the movie that got me hooked into Japanese action flicks, and cemented my interest in Japanese movies. It features quick, and graceful movements found in Chinese action, combined with humor. The movie effortlessly combines great choreographed fights, with mouth-watering scenes of food, and absurd (spoiler alert: the fight with a nunchunku torn from a minor character's arm for example). One of the most interesting scenario is the fist vs gunfight. In fact, every fight is brilliant in its own right, and has a lesson attached to it. Whatever its weaknesses, it is not necessarily a glamorization of violence, but a true martial arts movie (with its quirks).
