It's strange to flip genders here only to saddle the new girl with not one but TWO useless sidekicks... It seems to go against the fundamentals of what made this character tick. And it was all a little too melancholy with the score and flashbacks. Overall though it was interesting to see a female in the role and the different dynamics she'd have to deal with, and there was some great action.
Ichi has many of the usual tropes and clichés of the genre but it succeeds in dodging the banal and the melodramatic. The blind katana hero is a rather minimalist main character, but she is likable enough and aptly supported by the timid swordsman Toma and the cute kid. Zatoichi's relation to the protagonist works well as background narrative. The film acknowledges the burden of violence and portrays the effects of violent events in people's lives, though it could go further in exploring the issue.
Somewhat entertaining although a bit inconsistent in tone and intent.
A competent, but not excellent retelling of the legend of the blind samurai, with a twist, it's a woman now.
Quirky traditional samurai film with some very practicable plot points.
Ichi did "nothing" actually. The grand enemy is killed very easily. OMG.
It was a good idea actually, having a blind woman continuing the legacy of Zatoichi but the story doesn't fit at all.
a retelling of the blind swordsman. the story makes a lot of flashbacks but still able to follow it through everything going through. the acting was good with the exception of the horrid voice over i had to watch. with modern day swordplay becoming outlandish and flying all over they keep this simple and to the point but still good. worth checkin out.
An entertaining and dramatic take on the story of the blind samurai Zatoichi.
this was a pretty good movie. the cowardly guy kept getting on my nerves, but good action and I loved how over the top the main bad guy was
