The movie is truly entertaining and offers a well-balanced mix of action and drama with a good dose of humor. Based on actual historical facts it also has elements of modernity, in this respect the film is a fine tribute to the Samurai Cinema genre.
With Jeremy Thomas (Oscar Winner for The Last Emperor) as a producer and a Japanese stellar cast, Samurai Marathon is also a journey through the magnificent landscapes of rural Japan.
