Not as good as the first but it is still a very entertaining move
14 January 2007 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Let's get this straight, this one is nowhere near as good the first. The first had a lot going for it. A great (but very simple) plot, excellent fight scenes, great effects, a brilliant score and Lady Snowblood was a sympathetic character. The second outing for Lady Snowblood is a little different. The plot is very political based, being based around 19th century Japan when a war was going on. This time around Yuki is captured by the police and sentenced to death for her crimes in the first film. While travelling to the gallows the Secret Police rescue her and offer her a deal, if she becomes an assassin for the government her sentence will be dropped.

It's not just the plot that makes this movie lesser than the first. There aren't as much fight scenes in this one and some are less bloody. We don't get as much blood gushing and severed limbs as we did before. The score in this one isn't as moving as it was in the first one and the character of Yuki is just a killing machine in this one.

But all that doesn't really matter as this movie is still very entertaining. There are still some great scenes of fighting and blood gushing, the best being a fat policeman getting both his eyes gouged out! Not great but still a very fun movie.

3½/5.
