Makai Tensho: Samurai Reincarnation (2004) Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review
Shiro, the leader of the christian uprising came back to life as a devil and is in a mission to recruite lost souls and bring them back to life as devils so he can get his revenge against the tokogawa shogunate. Jubie Yagyu is the only one who can destroy the devil and put the recruited lost souls to rest in peace.
The scenery of the story is outstanding including the fight between the ghost musashi and jubie that is located at an ocean view with vast huge rocks on the background. The action scenes r great as what u can always expect to chibas’ samurai movies. There are also great cast involved in the film including the young sanada (twilight samurai) and the great Tomisaburo Wakayama (lone wolf and cub) as Jubies ghost father.
The performace by the cast r sincere that make this samurai film a great drama with action. Be sure to watch this movie with subtitles and avoid the english dub because it will only ruin the feeling of the movie.
The picture is great brought to you by Tokyo Shock and the sound is outstanding. I highly recommend this film for people who likes a good storyline with great action. I also recommend the legend of eight samurai for another great samurai fantasy film by Sonny Chiba.
