About the Movie

Inventive and bold, this film shines with pristine picture and theater-quality sound on Blu-ray Disc. In an empire ruled by fear, the people's only hope is the ultimate weapon: Zatoichi (Takeshi Kitano) -- a blind, nomadic samurai whose sword has made him a hero and whose courage has made him a legend. Determined to help the desperate residents of a village, Zatoichi seeks justice through revenge. It's a wildly entertaining film that's even more brilliant in Blu-ray High Definition.

Fresh: Zatoichi is a mix-and-match crowd-pleaser that shouldn't add up, but delightfully does. – David Ansen, Newsweek, May 27, 2011

Fresh: The Blind Swordsman: Zatoichi begins life as a straight-up samurai movie, evolves into a slapstick comedy and ends as a rousing, tap-dancing musical. – Christy Lemire, Associated Press, May 27, 2011

Fresh: Witty, gruesome, and artful fun. – Ty Burr, Boston Globe, Nov 24, 2011

Fresh: Boy, is this baby a hoot. – Stephen Hunter, Washington Post, Jul 16, 2008

Why is iTunes so behind the ball? They really need to offer the original films.
