Takashi Miike's latest blood soaked action-fest follows Manji, an immortal swordsman on a mission to help a young girl avenge the death of her family at the hands of a vicious gang of super skilled samurai. The fairly disjointed, almost episodic nature of the story betrays its nature as an adaptation of a manga, but the action more than makes up for this shortcoming. The final 30 minutes is an unapologetic orgy of severed limbs and spraying entrails that sees about 200 dudes sliced to ribbons.

I almost awarded a 100 score for Miike's achievement of 100 movies. The combined creative by-product of that accomplishment shines through in this centennial outing: it has a workmanlike precision, but tries for seasoned risks in just the right places. So, it bathes us in blood and isn't afraid to play up its fantasy. Damn good fun from a master director.

Dull and overlong. Hardly any story and the sword fights were even meh. Skip.

Exciting samurai saga is essentially a series of action scenes hung together with contrived exposition, but Miike's effortless, masterful craftsmanship, both in terms of the balletic fighting sequences and the quieter emotional beats, combined with empathetic, involving performances from Kimura and Sugiaski, makes this something special; the tragic underpinnings of these characters act as perfect ballast to contrast against the over-the-top scenes of violent carnage.
