Makabe Rokurota (Hiroshi Abe), a loyal retainer of Princess Yuki-hime (Masami Nagasawa), has been commissioned to transport Yuki-hime and Akizuki's ample treasury of gold bars safely to the politically stable Hayakawa. They disguise themselves as humble firewood peddlers, hiding the gold bars inside the logs they are carrying so as to pass safely through roadblocks set up by Yamana, which is under the control of Takayama Gyobu (Kippei Shiina), whose attire bears a striking resemblance to that of Darth Vader.
Along the way, Rokurota comes across Takezo (Jun Matsumoto) and Shimpachi (Daisuke Miyagawa), who have escaped from forced labor in a gold mine. Takezo and Shimpachi first frown on joining the journey, but eventually agree to help out in the hope of escaping Yamana's oppression and cashing in on the gold reward Rokurota offers them.

There were some flaws in this movie's plot. I can't really say much since it'll be spoiling.

What got me to watch this movie was because of Matsumoto Jun (MatsuJun). Watching this movie got me to see an acting side of Matsumoto I've never seen before. I was really surprised about his character in this movie. He was a hero in the end that deserves more than what he have. Even though it didn't ended how I expected, it was still good. I think there should have been more "action" and fighting between Matsumoto and the samurais.

Pitch person 1: I REALLY liked Hidden Fortress, Mifune was so cool. Let's update it and remake it.!
Pitch person 2: And let's get a love story in there too...Let's see if someone from Arashi will do it!
Pitch person 1: Yeah yeah! And then lets have explosions and the princess be like a guy but not.
Pitch person 1 Ohh and we have to make a gay joke in there....

Producer: Sounds GREAT! Let's do it!

Still love the original, glad I got to take this off my PTW. Hope MJ's fake beard in his Hokkaido special is better than the one here.
