This was a disappointment after seeing the first film. I admire the melancholy atmosphere to a certain extent; Shurayuki seems to have grown weary of the never-ending cycle of vengeance and even looks like she's aged significantly since the first movie (made the previous year). But the plot and most of the fight scenes seem completely uninspired and I don't think the political subtext was well thought-out.

This sequel is much less interesting than the original film. Yuki gets mixed up a political scheme that ends up with everyone dead, but it's got no shortage of swordplay, and fans of Meiko Kaji will want to check it out.

Not nearly as interesting as the first installment, probably because Yuki gets sidelined for most of its running time, and lacks a clearly-defined goal. When we finally do have some vengeance to be wrought, it's couched in some long-form essay on modern Nationalist-identity militarism embodied through the Russo-Japanese war and the aftermath of the Meiji restoration, which is as boring to watch as it was to write just now.

I'm mostly torn about this movie because there are things I really liked about it (the cinematography, the sparse atmosphere, Meiko Kaji, the ending) but things I really disliked (the story, every other actor in the film). Overall a certainly weak followup to the first, but worth watching for some fun moments. Like Yuki with a shotgun.
