Audience Reviews for Goyokin (Official Gold) (Steel Edge of Revenge)

one of the great samurai films of all time. it takes a small hit because of a very slow start, but once the film picks up steam it is marvelous. nakadai is brilliant as always, the cinematography is sensational, and the locations are beautiful providing the perfect mood of serenity for the story. this film would not have worked as well were it not shot in deep winter, but once the mood is set it captures the soul. great film.

[font=Century Gothic]"Goyokin" starts in 1831 as a clan steals gold from a shipwrecked boat that was intended for the shogunate. In order to cover their trail, they kill everybody in a nearby fishing village. Unbeknowst to them, there is an eyewitness(Ruriko Asaoka). Magobei Wakizaka(Tatsuya Nakadai), a high ranking samurai, is so disgusted at what he sees that he leaves his old life behind, including his wife Shino(Yoko Tsukasa) and her brother Rokugo Tatewaki(Tetsuro Tamba). Three years later, Magobei has hit rock bottom, working at a carnival where assassins try to kill him.[/font]

[font=Century Gothic]"Goyokin" is an atmospheric samurai film with great set pieces, set at the end of an era.(To mark this, there is a brief display of firearms.) In trying to desperately stave off the inevitable, the clan is doing the unthinkable by resorting to theft and murder. So, the ends never justify the means, right?[/font]

I like a good hero and the hero in this story definitely delivers with a great deal of heart. A snow covered landscape provides a very serene atmosphere throughout and is the perfect compliment to the story that unfolds. The production quality of this film was excellent.
