FIGHT! ZATOICHI, FIGHT! 1964-Thinking he is inside a palanquin, three attackers kill a young mother mistaken for Ichi. She leaves a child behind whom Ichi feels responsible for. With killers around every corner, Ichi befriends a female pickpocket on the way to return the child to his father. At the end, Ichi learns that the father never wanted the mother nor the child. One of the best which is difficult to say considering there so many excellent ZATOICHI films. Fans will not be disappointed.



I've only seen a handful of the Zatoichi films and I agree, this one is the best that I have seen.

Stay away from the last one starring Katsu. Yech!

EIGHT DIAGRAM POLE FIGHTER, THE 1984-Downbeat final Shaw Brothers film from Liu Chia Liang dealing with the true story about the noble Yang family, betrayed and labeled traitors, enabling the Mongols to take over China. A prophecy foretells “7 leave, 6 returns”. The writing is misinterpreted resulting in a massacre. The 6th son returns, crazed from the ambush. However, the 5th son escapes and seeks shelter at Shaolin where he learns to be a monk. His sister seeks him out and when she is captured, he must rescue her in one of the most spectacular displays of kung fu choreography ever put to film. Liang’s most violent and bloody scenes he ever shot, the somber tone is anchored by the death of heartthrob Alexander Fu Sheng mid way through filming after crashing his car headlong into a concrete wall. Two hours later he would be pronounced dead. The script was hurriedly re-written to work around his character. An excellent opening credits sequence is a highlight. Highly recommended.





They have the final fight of this circulating on youtube! What a masterful peice of work! Can't wait to see the whole movie!

Yes, my BELLS OF DEATH is the remastered celestial print. I'd specify if it was bad quality. I think I only have a few of these movies with bad quality as I try to get originals of everything. Man, you kind of ruined it if you saw the ending already of 8 DPF!

I didn't know you saw any other ZATO's. I liked the 89 movie. It had a more serious vibe akin to his brother Wakayama's movies.

I didn't watch the whole thing on purpose, I stopped when he starts to fight the guy atop the coffins.

But you gave away the ending anyway with your "downer" comment...

I've seen the 89 version, Fight Zatoichi Fight, Zatoichi, and one titled "festival of fire" I believe...

Well if you stopped watching where Gordon Liu is fighting Wang Lung Wei and Chu Teh Hu atop the coffins than you haven't seen the best part of the finale. That's the beginning of the fight.

You'll never see anything quite like BOXERS OMEN, though. A friend said there was NO WAY he could watch that while drinking...actually two people said that. Definitely a love it or hate it cinematic experience.

I wish this would get a dvd release. Maybe Image will do just that since all the Shaw horror titles are VCD only.
