When shooting the burning arrow, we see Yoshi's finger wrapped around it. This would not work in reality, as not only would the arrow go entirely it's own way without any control, but it would also cause friction burns, and probably cuts, on the finger. That is a mistake one makes only once. See more »
Long before the dawn of man, strife was already a major component of life. Wherever a creature shared a piece of land with another, it was just a matter of time until a struggle for resources would ensue. Man was no different, showcasing a perverse fascination with violence. Man and civilization brought forth more innovative ways of taking human life than any other function needed for survival.

I must say at least to all the viewers who expect something else from
this movie, you really need to understand what Bunraku is. It's a one
word title. That itself tells you what to expect from the movie. With
the amazing star-cast, each one does justice to his little role with
ease. The script is not demanding so the acting is sombre in accordance
with the characters. I really did not know what to expect from this
movie and truthfully had to look up the meaning of Bunraku in the end
of the film. I was awed with the direction, it takes some really
amazing talent to put a script like this on film and gt it interesting.
For every penny worth, if I were 10 yeas old, I'd love the movie, I'm
35 now and love it even more. Starting from Pac-Man up to Afro Samurai
and from the Wild west to Shichinin no samurai, the Script Writer and
Director have left no stone unturned. The movie is very very
aesthetically pleasing in context to the title. I remember as kids when
we had the pop-up story books, I couldn't have imagined anything better
than this movie in my head. The movie may not be for everyone...... But
for people who can appreciate the difference from run of the mill
animation and Tarantino like action, here a movie worth watching a few
