You've seen him as the bone-cracking anti-hero of the Street Fighter films, now watch Sonny Chiba team with Japanese screen legend Toshiro Mifune and some of the biggest names in Asian cinema in an all-out martial arts melee that's guaranteed to please. Yagyu Jubei (Chiba) is the son of a shogun's instructor and the most powerful swordsman in Japan. When Yagyu's father selects Yagyu to be their heir to his throne, a bitter rivalry is sparked between Yagyu and his powerful brother. It doesn't take long for the brothers to discover that they have been manipulated against one another by a group of imperial nobles who seek to disband the shogunate so that power may be restored to the emperor, and when the secret is discovered, a battle erupts that would strike fear into the heart of even the most fearsome warrior. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide

Yagyu, Yagyu, its always the darn Yagyu! by MSarfati March 4, 2005 - 1:46 PM PST

I won't say that this is a horrible movie because it isn't but I was definetly dissapointed. I love both Mifune and Chiba and it would be sweet to see them square off. That doesn't happen in this because Mifune is past his prime and Chiba is definetly in his. Chiba is great as Jubei, a great role for him. The problem is that they introduce all these other characters that just sort of fall flat and it starts to get confusing as to who is who and what their role is. It's a decent story though it is really really long and there is little action to back anything up.
