Lassie everyone!A big hand for Lassie!(*clap clap clap)

A samurai finds himself un-employed after a dynasty is toppled.He wanders aimlessly through the countryside and lands in a small town where there’s two business men and their gangs fighting each other.He stirs up the fighting and offers his service as bodyguard to both of them.He plays them off each other constantly going back and forth between the two rival gangs.It seems like all he wants is money,but later on we find he does have a conscience as he kills his employers men in order to free an old mans wife so they can get back together.He gets found out and gets the shit beaten out of him but escapes.Then there’s a big fight at the end.Not much of a film,i’m not sure why it’s placed this high.
