The Reviews for Shinsengumi Chronicles (1963) 720p


Who Can You Trust?Reviewed bybobliptonVote: 6/10

Raizo Ichikawa joins the Shinsengumi, the elite military police force established by the Shogunate in 1863. It isn't just a matter of police work. Despite the high-minded and oppressive rules, there's corruption and opposition from the clans, particularly the Chosu clan, which had been exiled from the imperial court. Who can be trusted?

Kenji Misumi's movie is a constant whirlwind of fighting, bleeding, and corpses strewn before a backdrop of beauty. There is no time for more than elementary character exposition. Given Ichikawa's star persona, that wasn't considered a necessity. He played a good samurai in a corrupt world. He knew he was starring in high-class progammers. He had come out of kabuki, and noted " In Kabuki you're no good unless you're old. In film you're no good once you're old. While I'm still young I'll make a living in film, once I've gotten older I'll try kabuki again."

He never got old. He died in 1969 of cancer. He was only 37 when he died, a veteran of more than 150 movies in a 14-year film career.

"Shinsengumi Chronicles" - Tomisaburo Wakayama starsReviewed byChungMoVote: 7/10

An early pairing of director Misumi and actor Wakayama who would later be part of the team behind the legendary "Lone Wolf" series.

The film purports to tell the historical turning point of the Shinsengumi as the clan is transformed from a feared band of ruffians working for the Shoganate to the saviors of the city of Kyoto when they prevent arson by anti-Shoganate mercenaries. The story follows a young ronin has he joins the clan to fulfill his dreams of being a full fledged samurai. Initially suspicious of the clan, the ronin is impressed by the number three samurai, Kondo (played by Wakayama) who, despite starting out as a lowly farmer, shows the most integrity of any samurai he's met. The clan's drunken, brutish leader is soon killed by his own men and Kondo is put in charge. The ronin, already unsure of his decision to leave his beautiful wife- to-be, is tormented by the harsh contradictions in the realities of samurai life.Despite the good intentions of the new leader, the clan's roguish ways gets them in trouble with the Shoganate and they are given one last chance, uncover and avert a plot to burn Kyoto and kill the Shogun.

Well shot with the Misumi touch, the film is a little slow and dense if you are not familiar with the historical account. There is more intrigue then sword work but when the finale comes about the action is brutal and harsh. The ronin's side story is good if sort of a cliché. Wakayama' acting is very good and unexpected if you are only familiar with his dour Ogami Itto.

Well done if typical samurai drama.
