"A must see film"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Japan has brought us another excellent film in 13 Assassins.

The structure, story and characters are excellent. The main antagonist in the film is one of the most evil and vile characters you will see in a film. While the 50 minute battle at the end of the film is an awesome pay off for the great build up the film gives you. It is a violent film so it is not for the squemish.

Do yourself a favour and watch this film.

13 Assassins

Based on true events in 1884, Miike's epic tale tells of the rise to power of the despotic Lord Naritsugu Matsudaria. When his tyranny runs rampant, samurai Shinzaemon Shimada (Kōji Yakusho) is charged with ensuring Naritsugu’s bloody reign ends. With the help twelve samurai, Shinzaemon must set a trap for the Lord and his 200 men that will prevent him from ascending to the throne.

Critic Reviews:

  • " It's clear that the exhilarating 50-minute climax battle is both the director's forte and his primary passion. " – Mike Massie
  • " Rather than being a simple action movie, it is all a bloody samurai film that revives the chambara genre. " – Yasser Medina
  • " 13 Assassins is a samurai movie dedicated to giving you what you expect in a samurai movie. " – Noah Berlatsky
