'Samurai sword fights, adventure and action galore as Kenshin battles with the power hungry Makoto Shisho.'
As expected, there's plenty of wonderfully choreographed sword fights, action galore as the battle for supremacy between power crazy nutter Makoto Shishio and Kenshin (Takeru Sato) reaches its climax and the top of Japan's film favourites.
To stop power crazy Makoto Shishio conquering Japan, Kenshin arrives in Kyoto to face off against Shishio’s troops. However, his enemy has begun its course to start invading Tokyo with the incredible steel-reinforced battleship. To save Kaoru who's thrown into the sea by Shishio’s men, Kenshin also dives in after her but is washed ashore alone and unconscious.
Seijuro Hiko, the master of Kenshin is at hand to save Kenshin who knows that he must learn the ultimate technique of Shishio's sword style.
With Kenshin still alive, Shishio puts pressure on the government to execute him in public for his sins during his days as the 'Battosai the Killer'. Can Kenshin defeat his fiercest enemy Shishio and be reunited with Kaoru?
