Whirlwind
Whirlwind

"Whirlwind" is much more than just another Samurai film starring Toshiro Mifune. I have seen many samurai films, but Whirlwind is outstanding. It has one of the most intricate plots of any film in the genre, characters with real emotional depth and complexity across the board (this level of characterisation is often reserved for the hero in samurai films, but rarely applies to lesser characters), and wonderful cinematography. It is also a relatively rare example of a sequel that surpasses the first; it carries on from where Daredevil in the Castle left off. However, it is not necessary to see Daredevil first in order to understand what is going on. The tragedy is that this film has not received the recognition it deserves in the West in the form of a DVD release. Toshiro Mifune is excellent as ever, but the rest of the cast also deliver a very high standard. If you like samurai films, and you haven't seen Whirlwind, you should be prepared to sell your own grandma if necessary to secure a copy. Oh WAIT, you don't have to!!!!!

Vendetta of Samurai
Vendetta of Samurai

The famous showdown at Kagiya corner has been told many times, but never before with the realism and intensity of this version scripted by Kurosawa Akira and starring Mifune Toshiro as the famed swordsman who must face his best friend as they are forced to take opposite sides in a vendetta caused by the murder of a family member. Told mostly in flashback as the avengers await the arrival of their quarry, this film displays true heroism in the face of fear as most of the combatants, while of the samurai class are not skilled swordsmen. They contrast sharply with the true warriors involved in this battle. Araki Mataemon (Mifune), who was not only a direct student of Yagyu Munenori, but the founder of his own sword style under the Yagyu name is a powerful force ready to assist his brother-in-law against the murderer's allies that include not only another noted sword teacher, but the deadly spear of Katsumi no Hanbei.

Samurai Rebellion

Three of Japan’s top veteran samurai stars shine in this colour remake of the classic Kobayashi film, Samurai Rebellion. The roles made famous by Mifune Toshiro and Nakadai Tatsuya are taken over by the ever popular Tamura Masakazu and Matsudaira Ken, with the surprise addition of Lady Snowblood’s Kaji Meiko as Suga, the shrewish wife of master swordsman Sasahara Isaburo. Staying true to the original storyline lends authenticity to this new and beautifully executed version. Lord Matsudaira of the Aizu clan has sent his favourite concubine to marry Sasahara’s son Yogoro after she had borne the lord a second son. Bloody violence will erupt when the lord wants her back!
