Nicely done, if not overwhlemingly fine, the samurai tale focuses equally on ideology and violence, with the most of the latter coming near the ending.

It took me a few nights to watch through it, but that didn't dminish the film in this case. I found the climax to be inplausible but amusing. (Wouldn't you post just a few guards on one of the three days you were convinced you'd be attacked on, even though they were "exhuasted" from staying up all night the first time?)
