3 October 2014 | by sukinosenzeSee all my reviews

Are you Japanese Live-Action Fan?

If Yes, No reason to miss this show. This is the best live-action movie I've ever watched!

The Storyline: Great The Action Scene: Excellent (You will not see the awesome samurai fight like this!) The Music or Soundtrack: More than excellent!

and with the length that more than 2 hours, you will really enjoy the show. NO REASON TO MISS, Believe ME!

If No, then It's depend on you. Japanese Movie Style may boring for someone who never watched.

However, Let's give a chance for this one.
