Anyone seen it yet?

Apparently it is the Japanese version of Kill Bill:bounce:

Kill Bill is the western version of many Japanese and Chinese films all put together.

Zatoichi is a cult hero and there have been many films about him. It's a bit like the James Bond franchise in the west. He keeps coming back every now and then. It's just that the latest one is in a slightly more western style so we get to hear about it.

Apparently this one is going down very well with western critics and is well worth seeing. Apparently after all the horrific gory sword violence it all ends with a western musical style sing song!

Sounds interesting.

it's quite good, a very interesting mix of genre (humour, gore hack and slash, musical, etc.)

quite different from kill bill though, also outrageous but in a different way, less sarcastic and less hip, but more subtle
