Reviews Movie 13 Assassins
This film was a dark-edged delight from beginning to end when I saw it at the 2010 edition of TIFF. The audience there loved it too, breaking out into spontaneous applause during several scenes.
Solid direction by Miike, great characters, beautifully shot and simply some of the best and most intense action sequences put on film – ever! It does have it’s obvious influences, such as Kurosawa’s “Seven Samurai”, but damn, this one kicks ass mightily! You’ve never seen Shogun like this! And something else to point out: the sound on this film was thundering, shaking and stellar! THIS is the kind of film that reminds us why we go to a movie theatre to enjoy a film on a big screen, why we turn off our cell phones and immerse ourselves in the experience of cinema-going, as opposed to staying home on our couches.
I’ll go see it again on the big screen when it hopefully returns to town you can bet on that!
