  • AKFilmFan's rating of the film Zatoichi 17: Zatoichi Challenged

    Don't be fooled by the 2 singing moments that open this 17th film. Even if it screams 1960's, this atypical and really good film tries some different things and succeeds. The story is simply Zatoichi vs. The Porno Racket, but is very character-oriented w/ a very emotional ending duel. Even w/ a kid to take care of, the little boy is pretty funny. With eyebrow shaving on his list, Ichi just keeps getting cooler!
