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.

WARNING: THIS MOVIE IS RATED 15 IN THE UK AND ‘R’ IN THE U.S.

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