my first reaction towards this movie was literally what the hell is this!? i personally love action flicks with a oriental twist. I have watched other Japanese produced films such as Mibu Gishi Den and Twilight Samurai, both of which were fantastic and deserve a rank of it own. After having a good impression on Japanese films i decided to watch Ryuhei Kitamura newly made "Azumi". I have previously watched his so called revolutionary movie "Versus" and was not a bit impressed. I will admit his camera skill is excellent, but you just don't expect people to sit through 2 hours of film just to see camera movements. What we need is plot, action, and acting, three of which this movie does not have. I forced myself through 2 hours of this garbage and find myself dozing off from scenes and doing other chores to keep myself occupied. Watching this movie was a chore! Aside from the cute star, Azumi everything else was sub-par.
since Kill Bill 1 I never saw such a wonderful sword choreography. But it wasn't just for the honour, the pride and the respect that I feel for the Asian samurai culture that I liked this movie, it was the plot. A very interesting plot that really caught my attention. The movie tells us the story of a young girl called Azumi. While still a little girl, Azumi's mom died in an accident, so together with 9 other kids, she was adopted and raised by a retired samurai.
The 10 children were raised as samurais, learning all the secrets of mastering a sword so they could complete a secret mission that their "father" never wanted to tell them. But now, the 10 kids have become teenagers, its time to reveal the mission: Destroy all the powerful feudal people that could create gigantic wars, just to obtain a little power. So thats when Azumi and the guys found out: They were NOT being raised as samurais, they were being raised as murderers. Will they do the mission? Are they ready for the mission? They'll have to past a test, a horrifying test to see which of them are ready and which of them are not. If they pass the test, they have two targets to kill. The first one will be a piece of cake, the second one won't be that easy...
"Azumi" movie is based on a manga by the same name. I never had the chance to read the manga, but I really recommend this movie. A movie where murderers are not cold-hearted serial killers. They are just teenagers, feeling guilty by every step they take and by every person they kill. Just normal teens trying to accept (and avoid) their destinies. A little boring and extremely long for what it is, all that Azumi really has going for it are several eye-popping battle sequences, including the climax which is a totally delicious celebration of graphic violence, and some nice camera work. Like several other Asian movies, there are two versions floating around. First, there's an International cut for worldwide distribution and then, there's the original Asian, in this case, Japanese version that runs several minutes longer than the International version. Most of the differences result from trimmed plot sequences that were cut with the intention to make the International version a bit more dynamic. 7cb1d79195
