Matching her skill is a man whose swordsmanship is only bested by his internal inhibition.

London Evening Standard
Fumihiko Sori's attempt to make an original addition to the Zatoichi martial arts franchise never reaches the virtuosity of Takeshi Kitano's original. Needless to say, the fight scenes are better than the dialogue.

Time Out
With its hokey, flashback-heavy plotting, unadventurous camera use and a clutch of cloyingly earnest performances, it comes across like an irony-free, mid-season episode of 'Xena: Warrior Princess'.

Kevin Maher
Times (UK)
The villains are from the broad "har-de-har" school of banditry, the action is mostly fudged, and the resolution achingly obvious.
