Sakaguchi stars as a nameless wanderer, a warrior with only one goal: a fabled coffin housed in a remote temple in the east. Heavily guarded, there are conflicting reports about the coffin's powers. Some claim whoever opens it will be granted whatever they wish for. Others believe it is a prison for a goddess of destruction. All agree it must be transported from its eastern resting place to the lost forests of the west to be opened. Sakaguchi gains his prize, but on the trip west to open it is under constant assault by gangs of thieves and other wanderers intent on gaining control of the coffin for themselves, not least among them a temple acolyte carrying a magical - and ludicrously phallic, right down to the pulsing veins in one key scene - sword, and a powerful warrior intent on gaining the coffin for himself - played convincingly and with a good amount of charisma by Steven Seagal's son, Kentaro.
Cast & Credits
The fighting scene is excellent, I felt like watching a motion picture of Dragon ball Z (fighting scene between the goddess and the male lead. Blood is dripping, blades cutting the skin made me feel I am the one being cut! geesh, the effects and the slow motions gives all the details, I really love it. I also love the rock metal song being use, kinda feel like adrenalin rush in there! I was entertained!
