Description: Cult director Takeshi Miike delivers a bravado period action film set at the end of Japan's feudal era in which a group of unemployed samurai are enlisted to bring down a sadistic lord and prevent him from ascending to the throne and plunging the country into a war-torn future.
Solid Samurai Movie
If you expect to see a "typical" Miike-movie, you’re at the wrong address. 13 Assassins is a very solid, perfectly shot movie with exceptional actors and great pictures (although they are not that experimental as you might expect). It can be affiliated to all the other good samurai-classics and I definitely recommend you to watch this! Miike is able to astonish his fans once more by doing something unexpected: Creating a great not too surreal movie! Be ready for an orgy of blood and fights! The action scenes are aesthetic and wicked - maybe just a little bit over the top for some viewers, so be mentally prepared :-).
