Not the fastest pace, but that should be expected when one watches films based on this style of film making. The action scenes were great. The special effects were great. I'm a fan of this genre, so for me, it was exactly what I wanted it to be.

Movie was good and I would watch it again. Historic action movie without just relying on blood and gore, with a bit of mystical twists. Acting was good. Not for young kids due to the violence.

The critics who said NO obviously did not appreciate the historical depiction of ancient Japanese culture. It was worth it! Good mix of medieval Japanese society and ancient mythological presentation. Nicely threads in what might be viewed as alien race among humanity and the possibility they existed among some of our ancient cultures.

It was a good movie about honor and sacrifice. Interesting weave about magic and mysticism, but I wished they explained it a bit more. But still a good movie.

This movie was great, non stop action. It is amazing how a actor can say so little and yet say so much with facial expressions. Hope they come back with a sequel of pre-47 Ronin when he was a child with the demons.
