This awful sf-action movie almost ruined my passion for the Japanese culture. It's a strange mixture of lots of legends (or facts) making them all look bad. Good think it didn't start as "Helen of Troy": 'Forget what you know! this is what really happened'. No sensation, no thrill cause we all know samurai heroes get to the end, just a little satanic mist that fills up the cup. Didn't seem as a 'low budget' either. Clubbing scenes lack in motive. The fighters don't Dance, it's true (as in Crouching Tiger) but they don't seem decided to strike.
Don't waste your time with this movie really. Doesn't say anything and doesn't show anything.
