It’s an awesome, awesome, awesome show. I have nothing but praises for it.
My expectations raise sky high when I hear that a movie’s really good, so I kinda end up disappointed at times, when the movie doesn’t meet my expectations after hearing all the fabulous reviews. But not this movie!
Honestly, I watched this movie without knowing the plot. My first and foremost reason was Sato Takeru. Hehe. And because it’s action packed. Love action movies! Also heard that many who read the manga and watched the anime highly anticipated the movie, and were not disappointed. I don’t read manga nor watch anime, but if they were not disappointed, it’s gotta be one heck of a movie! And then gifs of the actions scenes started appearing on Tumblr. They tempted me even more, and i definitely had to watch it! My turn to tempt you with some gifs. xD
And these are just the icing!
I’m so happy that I got a good quality version of this movie, to match all the awesome. 😀 The plot’s there, a fantastic amount of action, though granted, I’d take any movie with action, plot or not. 😛 So I might be a bit biased. Judge for yourself. ;D
Best be warned that it might be a little gory for some though. It’s a samurai movie; lots of killing and blood. Still, I’d recommend it! There’s a tiny hint of a romance, but as usual with Japanese movies/dramas, don’t expect much. 😛 And one last thing: most of the stunts in this movie are done by the actors themselves!
Enjoy the movie and let me know how you find it! (:
