    The Blind Swordsman: Zatoichi begins life as a straight-up samurai movie, evolves into a slapstick comedy and ends as a rousing, tap-dancing musical.

    November 01, 2007

    Zatoichi is a mix-and-match crowd-pleaser that shouldn't add up, but delightfully does.

    However improbably, Kitano pulls it off quite gloriously. Admittedly, this isn't one of his most idiosyncratic, innovative or, indeed, satisfying works, but it's without doubt fast, funny, fabulous to behold.

    For those unfamiliar with such films, Zatoichi might be a little off-putting. But given a chance, the movie can be pretty entertaining.

    Orlando Sentinel

    This isn't arty violence, just violence, and pretty pedestrian for a samurai picture.

    Miami Herald
    August 20, 2004

    This is a wonderfully odd movie, proof that an artist can leave his personal stamp on any film, no matter the genre.

    This non-traditional samurai movie isn't for kids.

    Violent and bloody, carefully choreographed and filled with dry humor, Takeshi Kitano's modern take on the classic Japanese character is a unique vision that's told with confidence.

    Movie Metropolis
    September 22, 2009

    Zatoichi is a bloody film that also manages to be beautiful and funny.

    Cinema Signals

    Three-frame cuts of the action from multiple camera angles, hose-spurted blood and superimposed wounds do what they can in their primitive way to get you past the problem of improbability.

    Cinema Crazed

    Beat Takeshi's take on the Zatoichi storyline is very entertaining and continuously original...
