    SUMMARY
    Minor spoilers. Thirsting for revenge, Jokichi rashly attempts to assassinate the evil Chogoro but ends up being captured by Yakuza. His life is spared by Boss Juzaburo, in order that the harmony of an important commemoration not be further disturbed. Though now even more of an outcast, Jokichi is asked by another Yakuza boss, Umezo, to guard Oyuki, the wayward daughter of Juzaburo. The tragic consequences of this assignment will lead him into a deadly trap and a final confrontation with Chogoro.

    NOTES
    The Fearless Avenger is perhaps not as good as a film as the first part, but it definitely follows the same pattern and style. Here Jokichi is chasing the remaining two yakuza bosses who killed his wife and child. He's driven almost mad in his pursuit. He holds nothing back as he continues on his chosen path of a drifter and avenger.

    The Fearless Avenger reveals us a bit more about the yakuza and their honour code. Naturally Jokichi is bound by them, but in the hunt of his enemies he needs to break a few. There's also a few gambling scenes that reminded me of Zatoichi and especially Red Peony series.

    The sword fights which were absolutely great in their grittiness on the first part are pretty much the same here. Compared to many other chambara of the era they're more realistic in their own twisted way. Jokichi's different fighting style is even more evident in this film. And like a proper sequel there's more action scenes in this film.
