A powerful film. The most amazing thing is that at 85 minutes so many things happen that you'd expect from an over two hours film. Beautifully shot, action packed (Im no fan of action scenes so much, but in this one, it was very well made) and good story narration makes this movie a recommendation among other samurai movies.
Really incredible samurai movie, this feels incredibly fresh even today. The photography is great and the action scenes are the best I've ever seen in a samurai movie. The story has some nice twists and turns as well and the script is well written. Overall it was a nice suprise to find an older samurai film that feels like it was made today. Completely recommended!
