New Tale of Zatoichi


New Tale of Zatoichi is the third in the Zatoichi series. Zatoichi wants to stop being a mercenary. However, the brother of the antagonist of the last movie wants revenge. Zatoichi goes back home and meets up with this own mentor, Banno. Yayoi, Banno’s sister wants to marry Zatoichi, but she’s already in an arranged marriage. While Zatoichi is willing to marry her, Banno rejects her claim. What’s worse is that Banno is planning to kidnap a wealthy man’s son with the Mito Goblin gang while planning to double-cross tem. Is it even possible for Zatoichi to stop fighting?

It’s a completely new tale that doesn’t retread on the previous entries. In fact, the one hook that does refer to the second movie actually starts a new sub plot. Zatoichi fans will enjoy this movie, although viewers who don’t care for this genre or prefer more experimental stories should watch something else. It’s the first one in color, although it really doesn’t change anything. The viewer does have to feel sorry for Zatoichi though. Honolulu Zatoichi fans should watch this movie.
