Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
This is the fourth of a series of samurai movies based on a popular Japanese television series. Among the other features of this goofy production is its soundtrack, combining Mexican and Country-Western music. The villains are garishly made-up individuals who are killing almost indiscriminately at the behest of a new local magistrate. The hero is reputed to be a coward, since he relies on his detective skills more than swordplay to get to the root of the matter.
