If you like anime, think of Kisei jûi · Suzune: Genesis as anime with people. Indeed, anime is better in cartoon format than with people. The plot is somewhat sloppy and the movie goes by slow: the usual girl/woman with short hair that saves people with determination, supernatural power and a sidekick (a frog!), but who has her own sad story. Nothing special here. The cinematography is simply bad. This, more than a film, is an attempt, a thesis, something that could have been entertaining but failed at different levels. The acting is bad, even for this kind of genre! I found myself looking at the time several times and in the end wanted to feel entertained but felt more like i had wasted my time. Then again, they make these movies to start franchises or sell the idea and give cosplayers new (old) characters to dress up and wish they could be like. That is why i shall give it a three star vote. Just my opinion, compelled by another reviewer who gave it a quite poetic (and utterly undeserved) review with a 10 vote!
