With 25 film sequels and upwards of 100 TV episodes, Shintaro Katsu is the legendary Zatoichi! Hes a low-ranking blind masseur who lives by the Yakuza code and answers his foes with a deadly cane sword. By far one of Japans most time-honored screen personas, Zatoichi is to this day the ultimate everyman anti-hero.
A fast moving entry in the Blind Swordsman series, Zatoichis Vengeance is a tour de force of nonstop action. The blind swordsman meets a dying man who makes Zatoichi promise to deliver a large sum of money to his young son, Taichi. Zatoichis skill with his sword results in the death of several of the men, and Taichi sees Zatoichi as a second father. But a blind monk forces Zatoichi to question the violence of his existence and his future as a swordsman.
They bring in a Biwa priest who is blind like Zatoichi but his senses are even sharper than Zatoichi. Read morePublished 18 months ago by D. Clark
