If all you had ever trained for, if all you ever believed in, if all you thought worthy and honorable was now obsolete, if you were given a chance to once again be of use, to be that which you were born to be, to rise up in sea of poseurs and declare that you were a true believer, that you were one of the true hard core, even if meant certain death, would you take it? This is a great action movie with marvelously staged fight scenes that goes deeper and asks these very questions. Did I mention there are samurai? Did I mention that they are totally bad ass? There are samurai and they are totally bad ass. Kirosawa has got nothing on Takashi Miike.
