Based on a popular manga, the (allegedly) 100th feature by prolific gonzo Japanese filmmaker Miike (Ichi the Killer) is an irreverent swordfighting epic with no shortage of expertly choreographed duels and extreme violence. Burdened with immortality, samurai Manji (pop idol Takuya Kimura) must avenge his sister in a series of standoffs with master assassins, taking a young girl under his wing (Hana Sugisaka) who also seeks justice.
