Rurouni Kenshin - Heart Of Sword
15 December 2014 | by Xx_Peter_Porker_xXSee all my reviews

I am long time fan of Rurouni Kenshin and I love the 1st movie. Here are the good/bad from this movie:

+ Just like the 1st movie, character portrayals (including costumes, fighting poses, characteristics) are very correct, if you know the original story, you will immediately scream "Oh, I know that guy" when someone new appears.

+ Fighting scenes are incredibly good. The right usage of CGI mixed with practical martial arts and sword fighting techniques.

+ The right atmosphere is built up against the villains.

  • Too many characters are introduced without giving enough time for development. You will totally get lost if you haven't known the original story.


  • The pacing is a little bit awkward.


  • Fight scenes seem less creative compared to the first movie.


  • Kenshin didn't wear his trademark red shirt the whole movie.
