"THE GOOD: The movie had good casting, great scenary, and a great display of fighting. The fighting were authentic moves and the characters looked realistic. Some people might rate this movie bad, because they don't understand Japanese films. The story was good and if you understand Japanese films and culture, this movie will set in for you quite well. The movie would of been great, but some things had to bring it down.
THE BAD: The movie was pretty short. It could of been pushed a little longer. The ending wasn't conclusive enough and you will want more when you see the ending. The story of Jubei Yagyu's adventure is pretty detailed and the movie didn't give it enough time to explain it all. The fight scenes could of been much longer too and I don't see why they cut so much of the fight scenes when that was the most important parts of the movie. They tried to squeeze out too much in too little time. The lack of more blood also made the movie sink down. In Samurai movies, the blood is essential and fans of Jubei seeing blood squirting from a chopped off head is what they want to see.
OVERALL: The movie was a good showing with flaws. It had all the elements, but it didn't live up to the hype. Still, it is a good movie to at least watch once or twice. And for fans, it is a good one."
