  1. Rocco's rating of the film Blade of the Immortal

    The fights are uninspired, no-frills affairs (despite their sizeable magnitude), and the plot is way too loose to justify the runtime, but the two lead characters make this worth watching: the adorably grumpy, world-weary Manji with his iconic look, and "pain in the ass" Rin, whose fierce devotion to justice and fairness often comes at the expense of her own safety. Miike "the director" kinda gets buried here.

  2. Kwemo's rating of the film Blade of the Immortal

    Miike fun. Not the most fun or interesting of his filmography but a good addition. The action does start to get dull after about the 2 hour mark. Before then it's a lot of fun.

  3. HKFanatic's rating of the film Blade of the Immortal

    The production values and overall tone of Takashi Miike's hundredth film vary wildly from scene to scene, and - shockingly - the action sequences just...aren't very good. Miike took the opportunity to cast several Japanese genre luminaries, so it's no surprise performances here are excellent across the board; but the film is about twice as long as it needs to be, and feels so slick it lacks the wildcard Miike touch.

  4. Matthew Martens's rating of the film Blade of the Immortal

    If all that over-the-shoulderesque riding and looking and wandering around kept putting me in mind of playing Shenmue while I watched Kaili Blues last week, the massively multi-opponent hand-to-horde combat scenes that bookend Blade of the Immortal cast me back to the old Dynasty Warrior games, foaming over with endless waves of berserking expendables. Not a very illuminating observation, but an uncanny regression.

  6. msmichel's rating of the film Blade of the Immortal

    Takashi Miike's 100th outing as a director is a sublime creation melding his take on the traditional samurai film with the gonzo hybrid of genres his past oeuvre has contained but with restraint and care. Meticulous in its construction this is Mikke at his best surpassing both '13 Assassins' and 'Hara-Kiri'; his previous attempts at traditional samurai film. Well cast with Takuya Kimura impressing in the lead.

  7. Gonzelush Thompson's rating of the film Blade of the Immortal

    În cel mai epic film din 2017 Tarantino îl întâlenște pe Kurosawa iar rezultatul te dă jos de pe scaun și-ți taie beregata într-o zecime de secundă. Dă-i Takashi!

  9. V.S. Luoma-aho's rating of the film Blade of the Immortal

    Miike's 100th is a classical-goes-zany mix of over the top manga and elegant samurai fictions. As cool as it is to kill hundreds and hundreds of henchmen on the screen, it's still overlong and even a bit boring at times for my tastes. I wish there was more of the El Topo-like "way of the warrior" mumbojumbo as seen in the first 45 minutes. "13 Assassins" remains Miike's crown.

  10. Ottori Tekki Chan's rating of the film Blade of the Immortal

    It's like watching the monotonous version of Logan minus ninja cutting onions sat next to me.

  11. Fabio Di Felice's rating of the film Blade of the Immortal

    Takashi Miike è un maestro e sa perfettamente come rendere giustizia a un modo di raccontare, quello romantico e sanguigno dei manga giapponesi. In due ore e mezza riesce a condensare tutta la storia dell'immortale Manji, regalando al fotofinish del 2017 un film meraviglioso. Si apre con un bianco e nero splendido e i primi venti minuti di livello eccelso, forse l'incipit migliore dell'anno.

  12. Mark O. Stack's rating of the film Blade of the Immortal

    The ultimate in disproportionate revenge stories asserts that it doesn't matter what you did so much as who you did it to.

  13. Anthony De Luca's rating of the film Blade of the Immortal

    3.4. As with a lot of his big budget movies, the violence is glossy and pretty sanitised. Takuya Kimura is loveable as the immortal grump and I'm constantly impressed with Hana Sugisaki. Fun stuff but Miike can direct this sort of thing in his sleep.

  14. Samuel Andrade's rating of the film Blade of the Immortal

  15. Jason's rating of the film Blade of the Immortal

    Exquisite, almost sculptural, each frame betraying incredible fastidiousness, it is striking the we now find ourselves in 2017 bearing witness to Takashi Miike, creator of white elephant art. BLADE does for the samurai film what John Huston did when he gussied-up the bargain basement noir w/ THE ASPHALT JUNGLE. I would like to issue a prophecy: many years from now 13 ASSASSINS and BLADE will be considered classics.

  16. Panji's rating of the film Blade of the Immortal

    While it has too many sub-plot for an original movie, this is how Samurai-X movie should be made.

  17. Tida Wilson's rating of the film Blade of the Immortal

    Pretty fed up with Miike's violent-gore flicks. It is unnecessarily long, and the story carries a little weight. I would rather see him making more film like "The Bird People in China". If it wasn't for Takuya Kimura, this film would be even more less interesting.

  18. Eeeeeeeeeee's rating of the film Blade of the Immortal

  19. squid's rating of the film Blade of the Immortal

    Bad rythm, uninteresting fights (90% of the movie), no style, no Miike's eccentricities, just boring. Too bad because the main actors are not so bad.
