A group of masterless samurai band together to take out a straight-up evil warlord before he rises to power and makes life a living hell for pretty much everyone.
I feel like movies with these kinds of titles tend to suck pretty hard, but every rule’s got its exceptions. It’s epic, it’s badass, and it’s got style to spare. It’s also one of the better things Takashi Miike‘s done in quite some time.
It’s got a 96% on Rotten Tomatoes.
