    I've just watched this film(R3 2 disc from CD-wow),
    I thought it was great! :thumbsup:
    I would recommend this to any fim fan,but to all
    fans of 'Hero' and 'HOFD'(I love both these films! :clap: )
    if you have not seen 'Zatoichi' I would highly recommend it.
    Dare I say,but I think IMHO that this is better than both - Just! :smashin:

    A super film indeed. I love the mechanical/clockwork action of the field workers to music, a very nice touch!

    It also falls under Turtle's Axiom:

    "No film containing Light Sabres, Samurai, Submarines or Miniguns, can be called crap!"

    Just wicked, never saw it coming (literally!). Shame the film doesn't have a little more "pace" - I'd watch it more often if it did!

    I LOVE the showpiece ending! Great film.

    I picked it up on R2 DVD a couple of months ago, apul.
    HMV I think.

    It could be withdrawn at the moment, pending a re-release of some sort, if you are having difficulty finding it.

    Apul,
    I don't know about a cinema release,but you can get it on a UK R2 release.
    It was released on a basic 1 disc film only which I've seen for rental(not sure
    if that version ever retailed.)
    But,you can buy a 2 disc UK R2 SE which is supposed to have superb picture and
    sound quality,and very good extras.
    It comes in a presentation box and it costs over £20 on CD-wow.

    Apul,

    There seem to be a few on-line retailers doing the 1 disc R2 ('only' DD 5.1) for
    £13.99 (dvd.co.uk being one).

    If you have a MR player I would recommend the R3 2 disc from CD-wow,it has IMHO
    very good picture quality and an excellent DTS track (Sounds like it could be full bitrate).

    At £9.99 (less discounts) a bargain to boot!

    The film had a limited release in March/april 2004. Even my local Cineworld (Swindon) screened the film so it did get into the major cinema chains.

    i saw it on limited release on cinema last march as stated by delboy, ordered the asian limited edition dvd with dts as soon as it came available and then imported the soundtrack from cd japan, good old 'Bea' Takeshi, does not do much wrong.
