Critics reviews

In addition to setting up the dynamics that will run throughout the series, Sword of Vengeanceis the consummate comic-book origin story of a company man becoming a wanted outlaw, told in twists of memory, flashbacks, and dramatic revelations. I’m willing to say the film is in some ways an improvement over the black-and-white manga version.
