Title: Miyamoto Musashi
Native Title: 宮本武蔵
This time Kimura Takuya played Takezo or Miyamoto Musashi a gangster of some sort who was reborn after being imprisoned for about 4 years.
This is the 3rd time Kimura played a Samurai.
God, he was such a great actor. In this film he has this unusual facial expression when he gets mad and he was able to maintain it. Kudos to other actors as well, they all did great in this mini-series / TV Special.
The fight scenes were epic. The 1 vs 76 was scene was just awesome I cannot describe how I feel. (Makes me want to watch Blade of the Immortal more, it has 1 vs 100 if I am not mistaken.)
Just to share, I had a VERY hard time looking for a copy of this TV special online. I only stumbled upon the copy I know have by accident. I screamed when I saw it.
It was rated 8.1/10 by IMDb, here.
I would definitely recommend that you watch it, if you want a copy of it please comment or send me a message.
