Maverick director Gakuryu Ishii takes on the jidaigeki genre and tries to find a way to inject a blockbuster project with his energetic signature style. It makes for a rather slow but meticulous start, ultimately building up to an epic showdown. Interesting characters, nicely shot and sporting an extremely satisfying ending. Not Ishii's best, but quality film making that is a lot of fun to watch.
