13 Assassins 十三人の刺客!   Leave a comment


Love this film, check it out when you get a chance!

My quick review : From evil villains, to brilliant cinematography, Takashi Miike (三池 崇史) takes us back into the Edo era with his brilliant take on the “good guys crew vs massive team of baddies” theme we’ve grown to love since films like The Seven Samurai. I have to say, my appreciation for Japanese films has changed since I lived in the country itself. Not only could I understand a lot of what the actors were saying, but I had a feel for the environments, nature and so on as I took the film in. That said, I liked it on all fronts. Pacing, acting and cinematography were all on point. If you’ve seen any of Miike’s films, you will know they they aren’t skimpy on the blood and gore, and often use long takes and trick shots to really immerse the viewer. That said, i’ll leave you to grab the film, check it out and enjoy!!!
