Perfect style, cool fights, genius camera-work - but stupid story!
13 February 2003 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

WOW - when i saw this movie i´ve thought "It´s a long time ago i saw such a great enjoyable fun and popcorn-movie like Samouraís!". Ok - the story is very stupid and it takes a time before i could laugh about Nadir "The Bone-Body" :o) What i like is the very cool style, the very good locations, the genius camera-work and how it uses the Cinescope-format 2,35:1 !!! Also the hard fights with weapons you see never in actual productions (Tonfa, Sing-Gabel, Shuriken, etc.). The production of the movie is very high. Locations, costumes, etc. are very nice and epic. There is so much atmosphere in this movie!!! And the FX are very fine! The fights in the Toilet-Room of the Airport, at the Training-Center (20 People fighting!!!), at the stairway, etc. - all are impressive, hard and awesome choreographed by Philp Kwok who do the fight-scenes in "Les Pacte des Lopes" with Marc Dacascos and very much more Hollywood-Blockbuster - and that´s fact!!!

If you like epic style pictures - than give him a chance! If you like hard and realistic Fights without CGI and wire-fu - than give him a chance! If you like cool looking Japanese in cool suites, with sunglasses, big weapons and Swords - than give him a chance! If you are open minded for humor of other countries - than give him a chance!

And at the end - if you like high quality DVD-transfers - than you HAVE to take this movie on DVD, because the german DVD has a genius, clearly picture-transfer and an impressive DD5.1-Sound which will let your Rears rock!!!
