Magnificent, great sets, great plot, a once dormant samurai ideology is rejuvenated in this film.

great story telling, great casting, humorous, epic battle, and some subtle takashi miike twists. what else could you ask for?
i did laugh to see that the old foe was the 2nd kantou sharp fang clan leader...if you know what j-dorama this is from then you get mad props.

GREAT The story line twists and turns the characters are pulled together masterfully. You are quickly drawn into the shocking story of good versus evil, the step son of the shogun is the worst kind of vicious monster killing indiscriminately whenever the whim strikes him. His status and power of state give him total immunity. Until the Nobel samara secretly plot to end his reign of terror.
