Audience Reviews for Zatoichi the Outlaw


Everything in this 16th Zatoichi outing is ramped up; the blood, the loss of limbs, and even the dialogue and political overtones in the film. Apparently this is the first film where Katsu's company started taking control of the series and the film is a blast to watch! The action and set pieces are action packed and violent and the dialogue, with it's political overtones and darker tones, is right on point. Another fine film in the Zatoichi saga and one where we once again see the strain laid upon Ichi in his lifestyle and standing up for those that need the help.
