I just saw this on TV last night
It kept my attention the whole movie so it was preety good.
I liked how they did the effects with the blood

I've seen a few of the older Zatoichi films on IFC over the past 3 or 4 years, this 2003 remake stacks up pretty well against the older ones

Anyway what did ya think?

I'm more of a fan of the old black & white Zatoichi films. This one was decent but the CG blood was a bit off to me. Also the fact that the verison I saw was dubbed kinda ruined it for me.
