Aesthetic Appeal- 🙂 🙂 The movie was well shot, although nothing overly spectacular. Where this movie gets its draw is from the mixing of genres; it’s common knowledge that Sergio Leone barrowed a lot of ideas and techniques from old samurai films. So much in fact that his film a fist full of dollars was almost and exact copy of Akira Kurosawa’s film Yojimbo, this film joins the two bound motifs of both the west and the sword. Director Takashi Mikke brings the elements that make both the code of the gun slinger and the samurai appealing to the audience, joining both weapons and styles in some intriguing battle sequences.

Story – 🙂 it’s essentially a reproduction of the war of the roses but also seems to draw influence for William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet.   

Acting – 😕 The acting was satisfactory or better from all the actors except for the two scenes involving Quentin Tarantino. He is there to generate revenue and broaden the audience that would otherwise view this film, however he is unbearable to watch and is the only main detractor in this film.
