Enjoyable
8 December 2018 | by FoutainoflifeSee all my reviews

I must say that the movie I watched had a very broken english translation that took a great deal of my own subjective translating. I really liked it though.

This film is about, what essentially comes down to, a hired gunman. A nobleman pays for someone to stand in for nobility at time when the only price for honor is blood. There are backstories which twist and turn the film in places which helps to make this a nice thriller.

I personally didn't find this to be as bloody as some have made out. Like I mentioned, the english translation for the film I watched was broken and I really had to try and figure a few things out for myself. This was a well filmed movie. The costuming and sets were great. I really did enjoy it and I hope to find a better version so that I might be able to enjoy it all the more. I would suggest this if you like period thrillers.
