The Japanese Prince of Thieves.
Goemon was a real person who stole from the rich and gave to the poor – and like Robin Hood he has been immortalized in several movies, video games and popular culture. He is strictly Japanese so you may not have heard of him or his infamous demise. But even if you have you will be in for shock with this flick.
This has to be one of the best new films I have ever seen. The story, action and characters are amazing – it’s done in a Speed Racer style mixed with 300 but set in 1500 Japan with Samurai’s and Ninja!
Do I even have to continue this review?
But this is NO FUN NINJA MOVIE – it is VERY serious and even though it has humor, the fate of a nation is at stake and there is a lot of heavy drama in it. Not for the squeamish and don’t even think that the cruelty shown in this movie didn’t happen in real life. It sure as heck did!
This is a masterpiece of movie-making and just goes to show you that Japan kicks ass in all departments.
