If you want to see a fairly decent movie that explores the concept of bushido, look no further. Those of you looking for smackdowns and ground and pound will be supremely disappointed. I liked it.

Urgh. What a waste of ten bucks. It's an example of David Mamet's (and I'm a big fan of his) worst efforts... a hackneyed, rehashed con plot and excessively one dimensional characters that just seem to go through the motions, rather than act like real people. Throw in an end based on some kind of macho father-son bonding wish fulfillment fantasy and a lot of malarky about honor. Even the fight choreography was silly. I went with my wife, and almost spent the rest of the night apologizing to her... :crazy:

But, to each their own. I'd wait for video at the least.

Now you'll have to rent "Best of the Best" to get the bad taste out of your mouth. :D
