Format: DVD
This is one of the best Samurai films to come out of Japan-EVER!!
Tatsuya Nakadai (Yojimbo, Ran, Kagemusha) is superbly chilling as the nihilistic assassin
and Toshiro Mifune (Seven Samurai, Yojimbo, etc) is on excellent form as usual as the Samurai master
who stands in his way. The story takes snakes and twists and on the way involves political intrigue,
assassination, romance and drama with some of the best swordplay ever.
A must!

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Sword of Doom is the thrilling and shocking story of Ryunosuke Tsukue played intensely by Tatsuya Nakadai (Harakiri, Ran) who is a wandering samurai who has no qualms for killing defenceless people. This nihilistic film chronicles the different things that happen to him: he gets involved in a duel and viciously murders his opponent, joins an assassination attempt and while all the time descenting further into senseless killing and madness. Japanese super star Toshiro Mifune gets a small yet pivotal role as master swordsman that he encounters (although not in a showdown). Alot of Samurai Films are quite slow-paced yet remain gripping building up the tension slowly, Sword of Doom is the opposite a fast-paced and violent film boasting some of the best sword fights committed to samurai film. The film also boasts brilliant directon from Kihachi Okamoto, impressive music and very good supporting cast. The ending has been criticised as it is abrupt and ambiguous but I felt it was a perfect, unconventional, shocking and leaves you gasping for more. The DVD boasts another top notch transfer from Criterion. A word of warning to those who cannot play multi-region DVDs such as this Region 1 Criterion: Do not buy alternative UK release from the Studio Warrior it has one the worst transfers ever that looks like a terrible VHS quality print and is in letter-boxed format if you do not have multi-region player seek out the region 0 Sword of Doom available on Ebay or Amazon.com

Format: DVD
fantastic movie. violent yes but not just another violent samurai movie. this is deep as well as thrilling. If you wish you can view it for its kinetic action (beautifully shot if not as convincing as you'd wish) or for its downbeat supernaturally cold-blooded anti-hero, but most of all its the time and grace given to all the minor characters that makes such a difference. It's the sort of film you quickly feel like you're on first name terms with even the most insignificant characters, much as you do in some of the finest Hollywood westerns of the 40s and 50s. After watching this, the first thing I wanted to do was watch it again as soon as possible to catch all the detail in the quieter scenes. Watch this on a big screen if you can. Criterion Collection and other version are both good quality.
