Blind masseur Zatoichi is nursed back to health by a young woman after he is shot by a gang member. Zatoichi, who had come to the village to repay a debt, now feels further indebted. He commits himself to use his amazing sword skills to help the young woman's father, whose river-crossing service is under attack by the same gang responsible for Zatoichi's wounds.Written by

As the other commenter's have said it is mostly more of the same. Also, I have to agree that the plot is a less involved than in other Zatoichis, although I don't think any of this films are very complex, so if you enjoyed the others you will probably enjoy this one. There were two things that stood out to differentiate this from earlier Zatoichis though. First, it had a few goofy/slap stick type moments, which I don't remember being very common in earlier ones. Second, when Zatoichi got angry he seemed evil and creepy. Usually he gives more of the impression that he is defending himself, but this time he was out for blood. Not the best but entertaining.
