Audience Reviews for Zoku Miyamoto Musashi: Ichijôji no Kettô (Samurai II: Duel at Ichijoji Temple) (Swords of Doom)

Holy shit this was Radical!!! Truly one of the best opening's ever for this genre! Hiroshi Inagaki, director of I'm the Bodyguard, Woman of Shanghai, Samurai 1, 2 &3 bring's us one of the most outstanding of the Samurai ever and the 50s. Awesome plot and acting and great insite to my culture!

a great middle step to one of the best trilogies ever. the romantic melodrama was a little more overdone in this film than the other two of the trilogy, and the romantic monologues dominate much of the dialogue, but overall this is still a fantastic film and a great entry to a wonderful story.
