Pretty much what you'd expect
12 December 2003 | by masercotSee all my reviews

The lady kills an awful lot of people. The movie concentrates on the killing much more than Oichi's first venture which also addressed her feelings for the mother who had abandoned her.

But, as a samurai sword flick, it wasn't too bad. There is a very adolescent girl (I think eighty percent legs) and a boy who looks like he walked off of the set of Dragonballz.

There's not much that I can say about this except that it is one big fight pretty much from beginning to end...
