Movie Info

In 17th-century Japan, the ruling Tokugawa shogun is dead, and one of his children must now inherit the throne. Though this honor should go to the troubled eldest son, Iemitsu (Matsukata Hiroki), most of the nobility seems to favor his younger brother, Tadanaga (Teruhiko Saigô). This leads to an intense rivalry between the siblings that only intensifies when it is learned that Iemitsu's cohort, the brilliant swordsman Yagyu Jubei (Sonny Chiba), was responsible for the shogun's death.

    A bit slow, but you just can't say no to a film with Sonny Chiba as Jubei yagiu, and directed by Kinj Fukasaku.

    this was an excellent samurai flick. a story about two brothers battleing over the right to be shogun, the story is well told with great plot twists and a fast paced feel. conspiracies abound and you never know which side to root for from one moment to the next. by the end you realize that the only character worth rooting for was only semi-significant until the close of the war causes him to be the carrier of justice. highly recommended.
