The Hidden Blade Blu-Ray Review

Synopsis: This is an epic tale of Munezo, a samurai being displaced in a rapidly changing Japan. He was raised to respect tradition and the demanding moral code of the samurai and now circumstances are forcing him to make difficult personal and political choices. After a political coup fails, he is ordered to prove his innocence by finding and killing Yaichiro, a former friend, samurai and brilliant swordsman. Munezo secretly enlists the help of their former master who entrusts him with the secret of The Hidden Blade. Now he must choose between duty and honor.

Review: The Hidden Blade is a fantastic piece of Japanese history that focuses on a time not so long ago when modern-era politics were pushing out the lords and feudal system of the past, thus eliminating the prestige and quite honestly the placement of the samurai.  The film is epic in scope and is absolutely brilliant.  We highly recommend this one.

Interest Range: Action, Historical
