Plot: In 1582 Oda Nobunaga was on the verge of conquering all of Japan, but was forced to commit suicide at Honno-ji Temple by one of his generals, Akechi Mitsuhide. Toyotomi Hideyoshi, Nobunaga’s top general, overthrew Akechi a few days later and completed Nobunaga’s dream of unifying Japan under one ruler.

The world was at peace for a time, but soon a ninja bandit named Ishikawa Goemon (Yosuke Eguchi) appeared, using his super-human abilities to steal from the rich and give to the poor—a habit which cemented his reputation as a hero to commoners everywhere. One night while looting treasure from Nanban (Southern Barbarians), Goemon finds a mysterious box hidden inside a secret grave. A forgotten relic from the past containing untold powers, it isn’t long before Ishida Mitsunari, Kirigakure Saizo, Tokugawa Ieyasu, and Hattori Hanzo are all in persuit of the box for their own purposes.
  • Goemon is based on the popular Japanese legend about life of Ishikawa Goemon a legendary 16th century ninja warrior and bandit who stole valuables and gave them to the poor.

Japan Times, by MARK SCHILLING - 2.5/5 source: http://search.japantimes.co.jp/cgi-bin/ff20090501a1.html
«Visually, "Goemon" is blow-out-the- eyeballs spectacular, but watching the thief-hero Goemon (Yosuke Eguchi) soar into the sky, plunge down cliffs or decimate dozens of opponents in the numerous fight and battle scenes, I found my attention wandering. ... Goemon more a video game than an action movie»
Twitch, by X - 3/10 source: http://twitchfilm.net/reviews/2009/10/j-film-reviews-goemon.php
«There is plenty of truly stunning imagery in this film; cinematography and art direction which, in the hands of a capable storyteller, could become the foundation of a masterpiece. But those moments only amount to witnessing a game's single dungeon, awkwardly carrying over to the next, often completely unrelated level. »
Asian Movie Pulse source: http://www.asianmoviepulse.com/2009/11/06/goemon-movie-review-from-the~~~sshern/
«The majority of the film plays out like a series of interlinked MTV Music Videos, with flashes of brilliance in the way of the often wonderful CGI and clever camera work, closely followed by bad acting by the lead and a story full of stop start story arches that by the time the film reaches its climax you really are left feeling cheated.»
