This is a whole different movie if you understand the emotional intent and the intenseness of a revenge planned over ten years in advance. What was a band of bandits has become a clan. It is about two brothers whose father was killed for embezzlement AND his family ordered to be executed. The band/clan of thieves comes together for one last attempt to revenge their family against the Samurai with the older wanting revenge against the leader of the "Bureau" of Samurai who enforce laws. The younger one is intent on relieving the Samurai of their treasures as a last single act which will fund the retirement of the clan of thieves. There is more to this than clash of swords and the flashes of nudity in the plot.
