Strange, yet enjoyable B-movie.
This movie is just plain strange. Some parts (the beginning and especially the middle part) are just tediously boring. Some parts are hilarious and actually made me laugh out loud, even though that was probably not the intention of the director. And that brings us to the biggest problem I have with this film: the acting is horrible, even by b-movie standards.

I know Seagal isn't exactly Oscar material but he's really not doing a good job throughout this movie. And the bad guys look like rejects from Japan's Next Top Model. Sometimes you'll find yourself looking at the screen, wondering what the hell just happened (even the actors seem confused at times).

And then there's the good parts. The sword fights are excellent (but why in the world would they go to such great lenghts to point out that swords are obsolete and then use them anyways... oh well). The cut scenes are great (shots of Tokyo at night) and the music is superb.

All that doesn't change the fact that this is not a very good movie though. It's passable for a straight-to-DVD release and some parts are enjoyable but that doesn't make up for all the shortcomings.
