Zatoichi (2 disc Collector's Edition) [DVD]
Zatoichi (2 disc Collector's Edition) [DVD]
Dvd ~ 'Beat' Takeshi Kitano
Offered by lightningdvd
Price: 26.95

5.0 out of 5 stars A Classic tale with Takeshi's touch., 13 May 2009
This film is great! The action is frequent and bloody but directed in such a way that it is very accessible for others who find films like 'Kill Bill' a bit much. The story is nothing to write home about. I think pretty much every story line possible has already been covered in countless other 'Zatoichi' films before this. What this film does is inject some serious class into an old formula. All of the 'Kitano' trademarks are there to please fans of his work and create a really enjoyable film. If you like Samurai films then this is an absolute must see!

4.0 out of 5 stars Unique, gory and very silly., 29 Jan 2009
This review is from: Brain Damage [DVD] (DVD)
This film is great! Violence and humour in equal amounts, but overall, very enjoyable. It's also got the most likeable brain munching, hallucination inducing, blue worm type creature of any film I've seen! I don't want to say too much otherwise I'll spoil the best bits, but rest assured this film is a real treat! If you like horror comedies then do yourself a favour and check this out!

4.0 out of 5 stars Violent martial arts fun!, 29 Jan 2009
This is basically Japan's answer to Bruce Lee. Sonny Chiba plays the main character who is a bit of an anti-hero and finds himself mixed up with Yakuza's and a professional fighter he breaks out of jail. All three films are very violent and bloody. However, because they are so OTT and made in the early seventies when effects weren't as good, I found some parts quite light hearted and tongue in cheek. Particularly a part in 'Return of the Street Fighter' when a man gets punched in the back of the head with disastrous consequences for a certain part of his face (I won't ruin it). All in all if you're looking for a bit of Bruce Lee style action with some fun and ultra violence thrown in, then you can't go wrong with this.
