Randall "Tex" Cobb most certainly would - so let's make this the choice for tonight...
When I saw this in the theater in 1990, I had no knowledge of the Zatoichi movies starring Shintaro Katsu - so I simply enjoyed this wild 80's style action movie with a blind swordsman (Hauer) who is almost a superhero with his sword.
Now, having seen a lot of the 26 (!) Zatoichi movies - I realize now that this is an Americanized remake of Zatoichi Challenged (1967). I love the Zatoichi movies - and I really like this one shot American version. Hauer brings a pleasingly light touch to the proceedings - and he's backed up by a solid supporting cast.
I was delighted to find the DVD in the bargain section of my local used video store - and now it resides in the video vault - ready to spin at a moment's notice - anytime - even tonight - if you care to come check it out!
Until next post, you Can Poke Me With A Fork, Cause I Am Outta Here!
