The year is 1582. A huge chasm exists between rich and poor, and evening things out is super-thief Goemon (a Japanese Robin Hood) who spends his day redistributing wealth to the lower economic classes. Fate takes an intriguing turn when Goemon acquires a small, ornate, handcrafted box of foreign design that he swipes from a merchant and hands to a homeless kid. However, Goemon quickly finds himself being pursued by everyone under the sun and soon realizes that the box will play an integral role in the nation's future. The director of "Casshern" delivers an action-packed style-fest packed full of CGI-enhanced battles and one-on-one fights featuring whirling camera moves and outlandish weapons.
