There he joins up with a motley group who are illegally mining the shogun’s gold, and, with the aid of another swordsman, gets a chance not just at survival but to recover his name and honor.Sword of the Beast featuring Mikijiro Hira and Gô Katô is streaming with subscription on The Criterion Channel. It's an action & adventure and drama movie with a high IMDb audience rating of 7.6 (2,340 votes).
