About the Movie
The epic saga of Zatoichi begins. As tensions mount between rival yakuza clans, one boss hires a formidable but ailing ronin as his clan’s muscle—while the other employs a humble, moral blind masseur named Ichi. With its lightning-fast swordplay, sleight-of-hand dice games, and codes of honor upheld and betrayed, this first chapter sets the stage for all the Zatoichi adventures to come.
The Greatest Japanese Movie series ever!!!
Shintaro Katsu is the Legendary Actor and Director of Japan. The Zatoichi series was one of his greatest contributions to Japanese Film. It spanned for 26 movies (if my memory doesn't fail me). I got my love for the series from my mother who grew up watching the series. Every story is well written and told wonderfully. I will buy every episode. Thank you for not disgracing his memory by keeping them in the original Japanese.
He's like a Japanese James Bond samurai style. Ohh & he's blind;) Sake... shaken not stirred. Be forewarned it's where Tarantino got the blood idea!! Please don't make me pay a million ¥€N!
The last gunman...
This is the very first contemporary "anti-hero" of the modern age.
