  1. AKFilmFan's rating of the film Zatoichi 12: Zatoichi and the Chess Expert

    One of the best of the series yet, this film both stays true to the formula and improves on it. It contains the familiar but adds a more complex screenplay and added emotional weight. Katsu's performance becomes more refined with such scenes as his search for the dropped medicine and reacting to the girl's thankfulness. This film will be hard to beat.
