The Bushido Blade is set in 19th century Japan, at the time of American Commodore Matthew Perry's opening up of the ancient oriental nation. As played by Richard Boone (in his last film), Perry is a megalomaniac mercenary who makes Custer look like a humanitarian. The plot involves Perry's efforts to locate a sacred sword.

Hmm... by CFrance November 18, 2007 - 11:23 PM PST
I'm surprised more people don't like this film. I thought it had some fun action/adventure aspects to it. Then again I did grow up on 80s action films. This film might be a bit dated for today's audience, but I thought it had some strong points.
