Banana A Day - Sword of Vengeance

I love a good movie about revenge. This movie is the first in a series of films about revenge. Naturally I love this movie. The story revolves around the murder of Ogami Itto's wife by the Yagyu clan. There is a big conspiracy to frame Itto for the murder, but he sees through every ones lies and declares revenge on those involved. He then takes his son and sets out on the road. The great thing about his character is that he is strictly business. He never speaks unless necessary, and he always gets the job done. Every battle he is involved in, he is always the fastest and the strongest. When he encounters a group of bandits and does not attack them right away, you know its just a matter of time before those guys are going to end up dead. This scene offered a good amount of tension, just watching how far the bandits would push Itto before he killed all of them. Alas Ogami Itto's tale of revenge does not end here and he must go on for another five movies.
