@EthanKant Just an FYI in case you didn't know there will be a part 2 to this film.. I can't wait!!!
It is obvious whoever made this movie have a lot of love for cinema. The whole movie is frame after frame of moving art. The action scenes are not only well choreographed but beautiful to look at as well. My only complain is the movie is too long for its paper thin plot with typical japanese manga muddled philosophy. Nevertheless this film is like a very expensive dessert one cannot bear to sink a fork into.
This was an excellent film
that was a blast to watch! indeed great fighting scene, Hiten Mitsurugi Ryu ftw!
