Zatoichi is legendary - a must watch!

by -

This DVD consists of 5 episodes. Each episode is about 45 minutes long starring the famous Shintaro Katsu who created the TV version of this beloved blind masseur and swordsman. Each episode is independent and complete. The audience is taken to one unique adventure to the next. There is some strong language and nudity and may not be suitable for young children to watch. Shintaro Katsu is very effective in this role and you cannot help but sympathize with him. He makes no excuses for his limits and he does not always make the right decisions but his heart is consistently with the best intentions for the strangers he meet and fight for. This is a story of a man seeking meaning and redemption. Each episode is fast-paced and focused. The performance and the action choreography are very suggestive of kabuki and old Japanese action drama. There are some lighthearted humor along the way but overall there will always be tragedy, triumph in the lives of Zato Ichi and the people of Edo Japan.
