Editorial Reviews

In the days of feudal Japan bandits ruled the forests. Tajomaru was the king of criminals—his ruthless character terrorized villagers and royalty across the country. As the legend was known, whoever killed the infamous thief inherited his name, his sword and his reputation.

Up-and-coming actor Shun Oguri (Sukiyaki Western Django) stars as Naomitsu, a nobleman forced to flee the capital by conspirators embroiled in jealousy. In a desperate struggle with the nefarious Tajomaru, Naomitsu loses the love of his life, Ako, but gains a new title and the coveted blade, The Cutting Wave. As he wages war on his betrayers in furious battles—and even braves the depths of the Pit of Hell—bodies will fall and vengeance will be served by the great bandit king.

If you like this kind of genre, then buy this movie. It was most definitely quality entertainment and something you want in your collection. When my wife says it's a good movie, then I know I've found a good one. Good twists and turns in the plot as well.

In 2010, Japanese movie goers had the opportunity to experience "Tajomaru Avenging Blade", the latest film for "Samurai Fiction" director Hiroyuki Nakano.

"Tajomaru" is a film adaptation of Ryunosuke Akutagawa's novel "Yabu no Naka" and would star actor Shun Oguri ("Tokyo Dogs, "Azumi", "Stand Up!!", "Hana Yori no Dango"), Yuki Shibamoto ("Furin Kazan", A Midsummer Night's Dream"), Kei Tanaka ("Soredemo, Ikite Yuku", "Hot Man", "Waterboys"), Hirouki Ikeuchi ("GTO: Great Teacher Onizuka", "Beautiful Life") and Ken'ichi Hagiwara ("Fighting Girl", "Love Letter", "The Wanderers").

In Japan, actor Kenichi Hagiwara won an award for "Special Jury Award Best Actor" for the Japanese Film Critics Award and the theme song "Pray" by the rock band B'z was on top of the music charts.

The film revolves around two brothers of nobility, Naomitsu Hatekeyama (played by Shun Oguri) and Nobotsuna Hatekyama (played by Hiroyuki Ikeuchi). As children, the two would spar with each other and have fun, while hanging out with Princess Ako (played by Yuki Shibamoto).

Long ago, when they were children, they encountered a young boy named Sakuramaru who was a thief. But being a kind-hearted person, Naomitsu allowed Sakuramaru to become part of their family.

And eventually growing up, Sakuramaru (played by Kei Tanaka) grew up wanting to become a retainer for Shogun Ashikaga Yoshimasa, who eventually takes in Sakuramaru.

But growing up, as the death of Ako's father, one of the boys is supposed to marry Princess Ako and also inherit the family gold. Naomitsu and Ako have always been in love since they were young, so it is thought that the two would get married.

It is an interesting film, with a sense of irony. It is well acted and beautifully produced. It is quit different from the Kurasowa version.I think it well worth purchasing and viewing.

I thought this movie was going to be crap, but it was actually pretty good. The story line is better than "The Sword With No Name" movie that I bought at the same time. Recommend this movie if you just want to be entertained with a little bit of a period piece.

Yeesh, this was not a happy movie. I think I was expecting more cool action scenes, but instead swirled into an overwrought drama of betrayals and fake-outs.
