A New Vision of Perfection... If only you picked one this is it ..I promise you..!
28 March 2010 | by sanchezfamilySee all my reviews

This Japanese movie is a must see for the experienced and true lover of the genre. I must admit it is a new way of telling and old story but with superb achievement.

This movie will touch your heart while satisfying the thrill of many great fight scenes.

The score has the well known feel of such a saga and a well placed Asian Pop feel if you can believe they can be interwoven. This one pulls it off, over the top.

Followed closely the plot will unfold perfectly. A very deep and satisfying story that is not drawn out.

Please do yourself a favor and do not miss this gem....I Cried....I Smiled ....I yelled ....and Cheered.!!!
