This was in my Netflix instant queue for awhile and I finally decided to watch it. Wasn't expecting much and a trip to this imdb page proved that it wasn't a very popular title (only 2 reviews, no messages on the board, no trivia and only 100+ rankings) but after watching Love and Honor as well as Samurai Reincarnation in the last couple days I figured I'd knock one off my instant queue.
At only 90+ minutes, it went by pretty quick. You get to see how Tenge loses his eye and arm within the first 5 minutes but it left you wondering how the hell he got out of that mess alive, as the story simply moves ahead 1 year in time right after the arm gets hacked.
I won't get much more into it, as I hate having movies spoiled for me in message boards, but old favorite Tetsuro Tanba has a small role in the film and the ending is very Zatoichi-esque.
Bottom line, if you are a fan of Japanese samurai film, you shouldn't be disappointed in this one.
