646f9e108c An executed samurai takes an existential journey throughout time, space and eternity in search of bloody vengeance.
We begin in 1865, when the Shogunate is on its last legs, but still capable of punishing its enemies. One is Izo (Kazuya Nakayama), an assassin in the service of Hanpeida (Ryosuke Miki), a Tosa lord and Imperial supporter. After killing dozens of the Shogun's men, Izo is captured and crucified. Instead of being extinguished, his rage propels him through the space-time continuum to present-day Tokyo, where he finds himself one with the city's homeless. Here Izo transforms himself into a new, improved killing machine, his entire soul still enraged by his treatment in his past life. His response to the powers-that-be, whose predecessors put him to death, is the sword.
I normally don't comment on IMDb but the above comment on this film made me want to write my own opinion on the film.
First of all I'm a big fan of Takashi Mîke's work, so my opinion maybe a little biased.
Basically the guy who wrote the above review hasn't got a clue outside his realm of Christian/ western ideology. The film is heavy in Buddhist philosophy and existentialist theory, Izo is basically an anger spirit that refuses to die and his anger is transcends space and time, due to his fury anger at being killed, i think?!
wow a bit deep i know, G-ball3's probably used to watching "safe" Hollywood blockbuster which require little thought by the viewer to understand what is going on and plots are predictable.
So obviously he was way out of his comfort zone when he watched this film! I didn't understand every aspect of this film
