If you want to see the same thing, do not go to this movie. It's creative, different and requires that the audience have an imagination as well. Enjoy! It's a movie. It's made up.

Just let go, and realize that this movie is being shot as if it were a slightly more sophisticated stage play. The sets are not realistic, but effective nonetheless. Whatever the critics say, it is well-executed. A great cast, a strong cast, really brings this ethno-ecclectic tale of the lone warrior with a mission together. In this case, there are two lone warriors, but their stories blend and coincide so as to better the story, as opposed to distract it. It is West meets East Kabuki, and it entertains to the very end. If you enjoy kung-fu/martial arts movies, manga-turned-hollywood, or Westerns, then you will thoroughly enjoy this movie. Think Moulin Rouge meets the Magnificent Seven—Japanese and American, but only two. And without guns, but some really awesome fight scenes. Guns are never missed, to be sure.

Unique and entertaining, with a blend of violence and rhythm. The casting of characters was amazing. The directors Vision is one to been admired and applauded. Finally great to see a film that's unique and different from the rest. We need more films like this.
