I appreciate what they did but I think that they and others miss the point of the scene, it’s not supposed to be an elaborate acrobatic fight sequence. They’re doing Kendo, which is what actual samurai fights would have looked like; two hands on the sword, more footwork than leaping, running, or wild swinging. The scene looks completely ridiculous in context, like dropping a cracked out MTV clip into a rerun of a show from the 70s.
I think it would be nice to include some of the shots but not others, especially the over the top force pushes, the punching, the throwing of crates and barrels, and so on. At the very least all of the original dialogue and music should be preserved.
