4 July 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A Masterless Samurai Madarame who has fallen on hard times is hired by a gang to kill their rival's beloved pet cat, Tama. Upon accepting the assignment, he finds he cannot kill the cat, and instead brings it home. Backed by some great supporting characters, there are a lot of funny moments in this movie that make you smile that are not overdone. Tween cat-loving girl me would have thought that this movie is fantastic. Mid 30's Mom me now appreciates the history, clothing, and of course, the kitty. Light violence of the samurai sword wielding variety. Adapted from a popular TV series, this is sure to be a winner for date night or family movie night.
