Only for the hardcore fan
13 April 2013 | by TigerMelonSee all my reviews

It's forgivable for a movie of this calibre to have a mediocre story as long as it serves as a frame for impressive fight scenes. Instead, with Kunoichi, the viewer is presented with a scant (yet still poorly presented and somewhat convoluted)story and mostly unimpressive martial art sequences.

Rina Takada is easy on the eyes and performs respectably in her fight scenes, but she has fairly little screen time in a movie that is only about an hour long (less than an hour if you discount the opening and closing credits). The majority of the film is spent listening to the male leads ham up the screen as they spout off about motives for kidnapping the female leads until you just want them to go away.

If you have a chance to catch this on Netflix to watch while having dinner on a Tuesday night, you might feel it was worth watching. If you excitedly ordered the BluRay hoping for Rina Takada to blow your mind in a high-kicking tale of intrigue and revenge, you may wish you had read this review first.
