  2. AKFilmFan's rating of the film Zatoichi 22: Zatoichi Meets the One-Armed Swordsman

    It's understandable, after the phenomenal Fire Festival, that this 22nd entry in the series would be a little adventurous. The 1st film to feature Chinese martial arts, it has all the sound effects & conventions of that style. Other than another young kid, the main weakness is that it loses it's way w/ misunderstandings galore. But it works, as communication between the 2 leads is a major barrier between them.
