Plot

A gunfighter enters a town that has two warring factions that are both in search of a treasure. The gunfighter has to chose sides; of course money will be a deciding factor.

Pros

Fans of the "Spaghetti Westerns" and Takashi Miike films will find this film to be not only familiar, but entertaining. The picture and sound quality is very high.

Cons

When Japanese titles are on the screen, there is no English translation even if you have English subtitles turned on. This film has already been done; it's call "A Fistful of Dollars" plus elements from other Clint Eastwood films. The only thing that's original about this film is it's Asian.

Extras

  • Digital Copy of the Film
  • "Making-Of" Featurette
  • Deleted Scenes
  • Theatrical Trailers
  • BD Live

Recommendation

This isn't a bad film it's just not an original Western with the exception of the over-the-top blood and violence. This is the weakest of the numerous Miike films I've already seen; simply put this is just an average film that Western fans may/may not enjoy.
