    Synopsis


    Blade of the Immortal
    Manji (Takuya Kimura), a samurai cursed with immortality, is hired by a young woman (Hana Sugisaki) to avenge the death of her father. He quickly finds himself battling hundreds of adversaries, not only to help his charge but to win his own freedom as well. Sota Fukushi, Hayato Ichihara, and Erika Toda co-star in this samurai action film, which is based on a manga of the same name and is the 100th film of prolific director Takashi Miike. ~ Garrett Spake, Rovi

      I thoroughly enjoyed this film, but then again I grew up a fan of Japanese anime and manga. Some scenes may make a Western Audience go "What?", but remember that that period was steeped in tradition and strife. Samurai adhered to Bushido... honor even when their masters had none. That being said... there is plenty of "Over The Top" Goodness here. You cannot go wrong with this purchase. I'm even watching it again now. :)

      I bought this movie because it has the steel case and I thought it ought to be good. I did not do research first and bought it on impulse. The movie is surprisingly good and then I find out that the actor and the actress are very famous in Japan. The script is good and the flow of the story is excellent. There are quite a few bloody schemes so not for kids for sure - highly recommended!

      If you were a fan of Miike's 13 Assassins, then this film is for you. The main guy kills like over 500 enemies and the bloody action bonanza doesn't stop there. There are so many characters with so many advanced weapons its enough to make you wonder where they hide all that by just wearing a kimono. Steelbook is icing on the cake.

      This is a beautiful steel with very cool artwork on the back side as well. The movie is extremely funny (albeit bloody) as supernaturally cursed swordsmen duel royalty and each other with sharp swords and even sharper words. The teenage girl is wonderfully portrayed by an excellent young actress.

      Excellent film, if you are a fan of Takashi Miike's previous work, I would rate this just a notch below 13 Assassins. The action is well done and the pacing of the film is good. I just wish they would've released this film in a 4K HDR UHD presentation instead of standard blu-ray.

      This is a review of the steelbook and quick thoughts on the movie. Miike managed to capture the feel of the manga/anime with this live action adaptation. Great acting and fight scenes. A bit long, but the ending makes up for the slow middle act. Steelbook is High gloss and gorgeous.

      Takashi Miikes' 100th film

      Legendary director tackles the story of a samurai cursed with immortality. Good movie loaded with action and quirky characters only Takashi Miike can deliver. Special steelbook edition adds to the uniqueness of the movie. Not his best work but a worthy addition to his resume.
