Zatoichi meets Yojimbo is an amazing clash of Japanese acting titans — where Shintaro Katsu’s blind swordsman character from the long-running Zatoichi film series famously crossed paths with the titular samurai from Akira Kurosawa’s masterpiece Yojimbo. For western audiences it might be difficult to comprehend the significance of these two fictional characters meeting, but rest assured it ranks with some of the most epic franchise-crossovers in film history including Alien vs. Predator, Freddy vs. Jason, and Batman vs. Superman.
