The Reviews for The Sword of Doom (1966) 720p


Not a standard drama!Reviewed byChungMoVote: 9/10

I had heard of Sword of Doom for years but never read anything that would have lead me to believe the film was more than above-average.

It is a dense and very Japanese film in it's outlook. It's very jarring when you get to the end as many things are built up in a way that would end in a great duel to the death if this was a Hollywood style film. Fortunately, it isn't. The film takes two wild shifts in the last 10 minutes and the film ends without what you thought was was going to happen happen. I initially wondered why it ended so abruptly but I realized that the filmmakers had a more subtle plan hiding under the shocking final fight. The hints are there, you just can't take what's being said lightly. It has more in common with the usual twists and turns of real life than a contrived drama.

(Update Sept 2005) I just found out that this film was the first installment of a planned trilogy that was never completed. That might explain the abrupt ending but I like my interpretation better since we will never see the intended continuation.

Beside the intensely brutal fight at the end, this film features many corrupt main characters, much like the Italian westerns of the time. This is a tough movie but it's one of the best samurai dramas I've seen.

Strange, haunting, beautiful and abrupt.Reviewed bystormrustonVote: 8/10

My brother insisted i watch this movie. I am glad he did.

This is a unfinished movie with a unfinished important subplot to the N.American mind. I suppose to some this would be artsy, to me it is irritating, but not enough so to detract from this amazing piece of film.

This is a great case study of madness, discipline and honour. The filming is beautiful and the acting intense.

The story(s) are easily followed and you will be glued to it until the end.

The fights are well done, but the real movie is in watching the decent of despair and madness that befall Ryunosuke and the damage he causes in his wake.

Worth watching.

A pure action movieReviewed byalberich68Vote: 7/10

Imagine your favorite action movie, then take out all the cheesy one-liners ("Asta la vista, baby!"), the irritating sidekick, the love interest, the techno-porn, and the off-handed moralistic ending. Then add a Commando-league body count, incredible swordplay, and great photography, and you've got Sword of Doom. This is a wrenching, visceral drama about an antagonist armed not with a stolen nuclear device, but with the best sword-fighting skills in Japan and a psychopath's indifference to human life. Unlike other more recent movies that try to portray the same raw, killing-machine kind of character, Sword of Doom does not resort to grimy photography or an adolescent delight in visual assault. Instead you get pure, distilled, ultra-kinetic fighting suffused with a thrilling coldness.
