Action packed Samurai movie
Legend of the Eight Samurai film This is an enjoyable Japanese movie that deals with good versus evil. Hiroyuki Sanada (Last Samurai) plays the part of Shinbei, a young and inexperienced Samurai warrior who is drifting aimlessly, until he meets a Princess who is being chased by the evil phantom warriors, witches. He and 7 other 'protectors' are all that stand between her and destruction. The movie has lots of action, special effects that were very good for their day, some very funny moments, and a rather nice (though not explicit) love scene between Hiroyuki Sanada and Hiroko Yakushimaru. The version I have is dubbed into English - I hope to find a copy in its original Japanese language with English subtitles. But definitely one of the best Japanese movies I've seen in a while.

Maybe, maybe not
Legend of the Eight Samurai review Before I blast this film, let me say that the worst parts are the transfer to DVD, the dubbing, and the 70's soap opera sound track. With original script in subtitles and (I hope) a better sound track and transfer it might be okay. The story is convoluted and the acting in choppy at best. A moment of good acting is wiped out by very amateurish scenes. It almost appears that this was a combination of two or more films? They filmed part of the movie and a completely different film company finished it? Anyway, unless you are totally addicted to bad Japanese action films, don't bother.
