 Product Detail

47 BLADES OF VENGEANCE
aka THE FALL OF AKO CASTLE
Starring : Sonny Chiba, Yorozuya (Nakamura) Kinnosuke.

Directed by: Fukasaku Kinji

The famous tale of the 47 Ronin is retold by director Kinji Fukasaku. Sonny Chiba is a former retainer of the Asano household and rejoins the Asanos to take revenge for their Lord's wicked treatment by Kira and the Shogunate that lead to the Lord's death.

Chiba doesn't star in the film but his role brings very much to 'Ako'. The final battle in which the 47 ronin take revenge is absolutely breathtaking: Sonny Chiba engages in one of the best sword duels I have ever seen.

The single best one on one duel between expert swordsman highlights what already is an excellent example of superior swordsmanship. Chiba and his opponent slash furiously until each is out of breath, the staggered combatants make the duel look very realistic.

A brief appearance by Toshiro Mifune was a pleasant surprise as well. 'Ako' is strongly recommended.
