Of the story whose title derives from the Japanese word meaning masterless samurai: "The characters, both male and female, are terribly good at what they do, they just have no place to do it anymore. They're hired to pull off a job, get double-crossed twice and have to get out of it. During a difficult job, the men and their morality, or lack of it, is revealed."

Customer Reviews

Great Car Chase

You'll need a seat belt on for this movie. One of the best film car chases (done for real - no special effects), plus cool performances from De Niro, Reno, and Stellan Skarsgard. Plus some dodgy irish accents and some even dodgier oriental philosophy thrown in for good measure! What more do you want.

One of my favourite films!

Great drama, great car chase, great fun. Even better I can get it on the 99p this week!

A Good Night In!

This film is something you can lose yourself in. Very real, believable stuff, put together and filmed well. French connection style, you won't be dissapointed and it will also make you want to buy an Audi S8.
