'The Sword of Doom' is a dark and disturbing martial arts film that follows the life of Ryunosuke Tsukue who is an amoral samurai and a master swordsman bordering on insanity. Dashingly handsome Tatsuya Nakadai gives an intense portrayal of this complex man matching his brilliant performances in 'Kagemusha', 'Ran' and 'The Human Condition'. The enigmatic ending of the film has been debated for decades and it shows Ryunosuke representing the evil in man which will continue to assert itself against the good in him for all eternity. The action scenes in the film are dazzling in their complexity and scope and the film's finale is one of the most desperate samurai duels in the film history. All of these come together to make this film one of the greatest martial arts classics.

I was entranced by the intensity of the character, Ryunosuke's eyes and how much evil he has within himself. It is no wonder that someone like him would be contending with a lot of inner demons. The ending was strong but it also felt somewhat inconclusive. No matter, I still enjoyed this film and those who like samurai movies, particularly of the evil ones, will enjoy it too!
