About the Film
From Academy Award-winning director Sidney Pollack ("The Firm," "Absence of Malice") comes this suspenseful adventure about a Harry Kilmer (Oscar-nominee Robert Mitchum, "Cape Fear"), an American man determined to rescue his employer's kidnapped daughter from the Japanese mafia in Kyoto. Written by Paul Schrader ("Taxi Driver," "Raging Bull") and Academy Award-winner Robert Towne ("Chinatown ," "Tequila Sunrise"). "Dazzling displays of swordplay," praises Newsweek, while Rex Reed proclaims this "an exciting, riveting, totally original motion picture."
If you have not seen this one you simply must, it is far better than Tanantino, simply mesmerising and wonderfully crafted, I have never forgotten the first time I saw this film. Just do yourself a favour.
what a movie the fight scenes with the swords are fantastic must see film.
Well at least it is in HD. However the same price as a brand new release film? This HAS to be a mistake, surely? Don't get me wrong, the film is fantastic. However it is not worth the price itunes are charging, you can buy the Bluray cheaper and some will put it where they want. If it had been cheaper, read in line with prices elsewhere or better, I would buy this. As it currently stands. No sale.
