Not as good as the first, but still a great movie!!
5 October 2011 | by juicyjujube21See all my reviews

Well, I do have to agree with a lot of people who say Onmyoji 2 is not as good as the first, but it is still a wonderful movie in its own right. While some say the characters in this film, were bland and without development, I have to disagree. First because I know the mythological history of the characters, and I keep myself more open to the characters, especially ones I have no prior knowledge of.

I thought the effects in the end, with the ladder of heaven were not awesome, but pretty good. Better than a lot of other effects I have seen in other period films. Over all, a very good movie!! Highly recommend.

Rating: 10/10
