Movies 2008 #9 Lady Snowblood – Love Song of Vengeance

Lady Snowblood – Love Song of Vengeance The short answer? I liked this film this much (opens hands up really wide).

While this isn’t great cinema, it is certainly entertaining cinema. Wildly so. A steely eyed-murderess slashes her way through a corrupt cabal in charge of Meiji era Japan?


Toss in some black death (as a biological weapon!) and a half dozen blood geysers and you’ve got the makings of a to notch pass-the-popcorn genre flick.

I am a sucker for this period and genre, so your mileage may vary, but if you’ve ever seen and enjoyed a Zatoichi movie then this will be a film for you.
