Decent middle of the pack mystical marshal arts/sword movie
I enjoyed this movie.
The story was interesting,The sets were beautiful and moody.The special effects and make-up effects above average, the gore level was generally medium low with one surprising exception. The costumes were wonderful.
The acting ranged from pretty good to very good. I found Seimei a very strange character and personally could not decide if I liked the way the actor Mansai Nomura played him or not.The rest of the cast I really enjoyed. Surprisingly this movie has a satisfying ending, a bit of a rarity in Eastern movies.
Good movie worth watching, I will look for the first.
