not enough in here
11 February 2020 | by theofilossalonicaSee all my reviews

I want to see much more from this title and finally i was a little bit dissapointed. We view the movie by Mitsunari view and see almost nothing about the character and thinking of Ieyasu. I also want to see more of Kobayakawa personallity and how he was thinking. The battle was nicely filmed but it started after two hours from the beginning of the film!
