Description

Directed by Ryuhei Kitamura of "Versus" fame, this action-packed movie is based on a highly popular manga serial by Yu Koyama. Like his stylish and gory previous film,it wastes no time in getting down to business. The movie gets rolling as soon as the band of ten Samurai in training, including Azumi (Aya Ueto), the only swordswoman among them, is subjected to its final test. Once again, Kitamura demonstrates his awesome skills into camera movements and fight choreography. The unlimited supply of stylistic action scenes and wild visual feast are enhanced by his leaping and pouncing camera, wirework and CGI specal fx. At one time, the kick-ass heroine (in a cool, skin-tight "period" clthing) takes on as many as 200 foes.

      Breathtaking 5

      This film is like Marmite; you either love it or you hate it. I'm one of those who love it. Plenty of blood, a cute lead actress and a focused story in a great historical setting. What more could you want?

      Great sword action 5

      Good action movie, effects are well placed and pretty locations. The movements and choreography are "real-time" and not accelerated cinematically, so the fights looks more realistic and the heroine moves, slash and cuts are more "natural" than other movies of the same genre.

      Hmmm... 3

      This movie does not hold up to multiple viewings. Some things in the movie felt unfinished (and was concluded in the sequel). Nevertheless, Kitamura san's camera work is amazing and some of the sequences are definitely memorable.
