Attractive artwork sucks you in, then stabs your eyes!
14 July 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Thankfully bought at my local Poundland, I had been tempted by the nice artwork of Hirokin for a couple of years. But a gut feeling was saying wait.

Wait until you find it at a pound, then think twice again.

But I got it. I was expecting Star Wars meets Six String Samurai, but instead got, well, I actually don't know what that was!

Slow, boring and with painfully uninteresting fight scenes, Hirokin plays like a slow burning Japanese samurai epic, well it feels like it in running time, but has the flair of a film students documentary on watching paint dry.

Nope. Just nope. There was no need!
