This movie is just silly. Another sequel we should pretend does not exist.
It starts off pretty dark and grim, but the plot is smooth and eventless. It could have been something special, but it is only a well done classic heroic samurai movie.
The dialogs should carry this film, but they end up being boring and all the punchlines fall flat.
Above avarage, but it's so unnecessarily long that you may want to punish it with a bad rating.
