Hmmm. Swords, Nudity and Spurting Blood
John P. Marsh | North Las Vegas | 04/06/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I own this film and it is excessive and brutal and sadistic, to be sure. It also has some really beautiful moments including the opening stylized title sequence. Tamba is reported to have never turned down a film in the course of his career (Asian Michael Caine,) which probably explains why he is in this. Teruo Ishii is a gifted film maker, possessing a unique and overly modulated style. While initially off-putting, the story eventually becomes interesting with regard to Tanba's plight. Two stars for the sqeemish, four stars for Japanese sword-fu fans."
As good as it gets!

"An amazing amount of breasts, wonderful gore, a cool as Hell killer and a tongue in cheek attitude about the whole thing. What more could a trash fan want? This is even better than the trailer!"
More Teruo Ishii's masterpieces on DVDs please

"Toei Video released acclaimed director Teruo Ishii's 5 movies on DVDs, including Bohachi Bushido in October 2006 in Japan. I really hope Discotek Media will release this director's other good flicks on DVDs in the U.S. market very soon. Better offer his works in DVD box-sets.
A good movie

"I had expected this movie to be like american "b" movies, so horrible that it was funny, but it actually turned out to be fun movie. There is A LOT of nudity(not that I'm complaining)practically every other frame..The flying heads will have you laughing,they just fly too perfectly in the air. Will you find well developed characters here? NO. A backstory to explain the main characters plight? NO.A reason why that old man has to talk so slowly? No, definitely not, but you will be entertained.And you will soon want your own group of female guards/girlfriends/assassins as well."
