The feature-length film BUSHIDO MAN: SEVEN DEADLY BATTLES arrives on Blu-ray™, DVD and Digital HD and available in stores nationwide on June 10, 2014.
Boasting a large cult following in Japan, Germany and a festival favorite at the 2013 Fantasia International Film Festival, the feature film BUSHIDO MAN: SEVEN DEADLY BATTLES is a wildly entertaining action comedy that combines hard-hitting martial arts fight sequences and visceral action with plenty of surprises. Incredibly choreographed fights encompassing seven different disciplines make this the action movie of choice for summer home viewing. Writer/Director Takanori Tsujimoto (Red Tears and Hard Revenge, Milly: Bloody Battle) reteams with renowned action choreographer Kensuke Sonomura (Resident Evil: Degeneration) and martial arts expert/action star Mitsuki Koga for his best film to date.
In addition to the action sequences, BUSHIDO MAN: SEVEN DEADLY BATTLES peppers in mouth-watering interludes at assorted eateries, making the film a mini-travelogue for foodies with a fondness for fisticuffs. Toramaru’s (Koga) philosophy dictates that Gensai “know the enemy by eating his food” and each masterfully-choreographed fight is preceded by a helping of his adversary’s favorite dish. Writer/director Tsujimoto serves up a winner, seven times over!
