Dororo:At least tell me your name! If you don't I'll call you something weird and shout it out.
Hyakkimaru:If you ask, tell me yours first.
Dororo:A thief has no name. A name could get you arrested. Any thief with a name is just third-rate.
Hyakkimaru:So we're the same. I have no fixed name. Drifter, Hyakkimura, Dororo.
Dororo:"Dororo?"... Sounds perfect for a professional thief like me. All right, it's mine! So I'm Dororo, you're Hyakkimura.

Mixed Feelings, 23 February 2011
Author: mmushrm from Thailand

Just finished watching Dororo and I have mixed feelings. Do I like or dislike this movie...

The opening sequence was great, in fact the first 1/3 of the movie was really good. Good fights with CG. Also some humour. The lead is as stiff as a freaking rock but then again that could be due to his character...a man with no heart plus another 47 missing body parts so the chemistry between the stoic hero and the energetic Dororo isn't all there.

There are also parts with some slapstick action/comedy with monsters in rubbers suits, quite amusing even if it seemed to drag a little too long.

I think thats the issue I had with this movie, the middle part seemed to drag on, it was IMO rather boring. The ending .... well I expected more, for me the "pay off" in the end did not come up to the promise set by the beginning of the movie. However since the guy is still missing a lot of body parts there will be a part 2 (hence the ending).

While I would say its not a bad movie, its not one I will watch again.
