What a great movie this is. Tatsuya Nagadai completely surprised me with his acting in this movie(He is the lead in Kurosawa's Ran & Kagemusha). In this movie, Nagadai plays a samurai who is so skilled but merciless. He knows he is the best until he sees Toshiro Mifune (always amazing & who is a samurai instructor in this movie) display his swordplay in the night when he is surrounded by gangs (amazing fight sequence - beautiful cinematography). This movie shows the transformation of the protagonist from being a fearless warrior with lot of confidence to a warrior with fear & doubts. Watch it to enjoy this excellent movie.
