    Synopsis


    13 Assassins
    Based on actual events that served as the inspiration for the 1963 film of the same name, Takashi Miike's 13 Assassins follows a group of noble samurai as they seek to slay a tyrannical, politically connected lord before he seizes control of the entire country. Japan, 1844: as the era of the samurai winds to a close, a sadistic young lord uses his powerful political ties to commit heinous atrocities against the common people. Recognizing the dangers to both his country and its citizens should the lord manage to gain any more power, a concerned government official secretly recruits 13 of the most skilled swordsmen he can find to defeat the evil lord once and for all. But reaching their target won't be easy, because the elusive lord is constantly flanked by legions of fearless bodyguards. Realizing that the bodyguards would decimate his modest task force in a traditional battle, the assassins' leader (Koji Yakusho) lays an ingenious trap that will give his men the upper hand, and waits patiently for their prey to take the bait. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      This film has a wonderfully constructed premise, a group of honorable warriors must assassinate a psychopathic lord before he can ascend to a powerful position and cause real damage to the country. It takes it's time, build it's characters and it's world. It's a slow burn, but it pays off big time. A great example of craft, one of the best action films I have seen in recent years,

      A samurai warrior is recruited to assassinate the newly appointed cruel and sadistic 2nd in command, who is on the rise to becoming the new leader of Japan and planning to start a war. He and 12 others commit their allegiance and lives to help save Japan and fight for the honor of their people. Action, graphic violence, some nudity. English Captions.

      Top of the line picture & sound quality! A movie made with a elegant build up that leads up to a unforgettable climax. One of the best samurai films made in modern times; the political side of being a soldier you don't see much, and with that climatic action sequence that is some of the best ever orchestrated. Great film!

      Movie is about 13 samurais who become united into ridding a sadistic war lord to prevent him from overtaking the throne and dividing the country into a civil war. Movie isn't for faint of heart. At times, it's brutal and disturbing to watch.

      Overall not a bad film. Great action, lots of things we have all seen many times before, a few that we haven't. You can't go wrong if you just are looking for kick butt martial arts with lots of anime style blood letting. Enjoy!
