Watch Movies! – The Challenge

From 1982 comes this fantastic gem of a movie that YOU STILL CANNOT GET ON DVD! and it’s near impossible to find on VHS if you still have a player to watch it on! Directed by John Frankenheimer (Ronin), The Challenge (or Equals as it’s known in some countries) stars Scott Glenn as a man hired to recover a prized family heirloom, by one half of a Japanese family headed by two quarreling brothers. The prized posessions? A pair of Samurai Swords.


Not sure how this has been put up, but definately recommend that everyone catch this while they can!
