"'Zatoichi, the Blind Swordsman' is, quite simply, the best action film series ever to come out of Japan. If you haven't seen any of these exceptional action-comedy-dramas, your movie experience isn't complete.

Don't miss them" --Ric Meyers, Martial Arts Film Author and Columnist

"One of the ten best martial arts movies of all time!" ("The Blind Swordsman's Cane Sword") --Martial Arts Movies, Meyers, Harlib, Palmer and Palmer
"The action simply takes your breath away with its speed, surprises, and detail ..." ("The Blind Swordsman and the Fugitives") --Wayne Muromoto, The Hawaii Herald
