Writer: Kaneo Ikegami, Daisuke Tengan

 So those of you familiar with Takashi Miike probably know of him for some of his more over the top movies like Ichi the Killer and Audition.  This was the first movie of his I have seen that takes on a more traditional story line and he does a excellent job.

If you have seen, Kurosowa’s Seven Samurai, or the American remake, The Magnificent Seven then you already know what goings on here. 13 Assassins come together to face off against an evil Lord and impossible odds.

This movie is not really bringing anything new to the table but it is still a really enjoyable watch, and filled with lots of action. If you are fan of this genre then don’t miss this film.
