Damn, that Yagyu dude was pretty cold and ruthless.
Excellent samurai epic from Fukasaku. Not sure how historically accurate it was, maybe the ending not so much but it's a great ending. Many Fukasaku regulars show up as does the blood. Banger.
A bit of a rock n roll neo noir, if I can call it that. Action set piece after action set piece here as Fukasaku turns a heist into a big chase sequence. Three professional bank robbers come across a score too good to pass up, tipped off by a lousy nightclub owner who wants to showcase rock n roll, and Sonny Chiba has a very young, very energetic girlfriend, who gets wrapped up in the mix. The chase scenes were entertaining but nothing i haven't seen before. All in all, a fun movie about chasing that one last score.
LMFAO!!! Seriously, this movie was hilarious!! Right away you get a perspective of the witch being burned alive, I was sold!! But then it gets dumb and I had a great time!! Just some of the dumbest shit in this movie, the glowing statue face! The bad early 2000's cgi! The Sadako ripoff!! The gullibility of religious folk!! And the pro-god message at the end 🤮!
I shouldn't like it but I did. Also, I had to have my return trip back to the theater while I was stoned. So, not to be that guy but since I'm that guy this movie was much more enjoyable!
