Goblin in Stirrups

Director: Masahiro Makino

Year: 1959

Original Japanese title: Kurama tengu

A sword, a six-shooter and a white horse. Face veiled in black, the hero Goblin in Stirrups (great name!) fights for the Imperialist cause. Basically he is a sort of Japanese Zorro.

Unfortunately, due to a poor script, the film fails to rise beyond B-movie status.

There are however some nice action scenes and few interesting musical moments, which it seems the director Masahiro Makino excelled at.

Recommended only for samurai film fanatics.
