This is the 16th original Zatoichi movie. And, GOOD LORD, does it stink. When we tried to watch it last week, i thought the nonsensical nature of the storyline was simply because i was pretty tipsy and fell asleep half-way thru’. But no! “Zatoichi the Outlaw” is just a really horrible caricature of a Zatoichi movie. They just messed way too much with the tried-and-true formula that had gotten then thru’ 15 movies.
