Review: 13 Assassins

Director: Takashi Miike
Year: 2010
Score: 7/10

Solid if slightly overrated samurai movie with good action scenes and excellent production values. The story offers very few surprises and the inevitable deaths of many of the titular assassins don’t pack much of an emotional punch. 93 more words


13 ASSASSINS (2010), that’s what we have in The Q  this week! Cult director Takeshi Miike (Ichi the Killer, Audition) delivers a bravado period action film set at the end of Japan’s feudal era in which a group of unemployed samurai are enlisted to bring down a sadistic lord and prevent him from ascending to the throne and plunging the country into a war torn future. 54 more words
