Movie Reviews

San Francisco Chronicle - 10/10 by G. Allen Johnson The well-crafted 13 Assassins, a remake of a 1960s samurai film, is one of his best; it shows that Takashi could be a great filmmaker if he'd only slow down.
Time Out New York - 10/10 by Joshua Rothkopf A classically structured rampage that bears serious comparison to the definitive greats of Akira Kurosawa, 13 Assassins will floor connoisseurs of action, mood and the dignity of a pissed-off scowl.
Philadelphia Inquirer - 10/10 by Steven Rea 13 Assassins is, at turns, thrilling and funny, visually exquisite and emotionally charged.
Salon.com - 10/10 by Andrew O'Hehir Visually spectacular, with wide-screen cinematography from Nobuyasu Kita, impressive, full-scale sets and special effects and exhausting, immersive action scenes, 13 Assassins is pretty nearly the samurai classic it sets out to become.
Wall Street Journal - 10/10 by Joe Morgenstern Right makes might in Takashi Miike's excellent-and exceedingly violent-remake of a 1966 Japanese classic by Eiichi Kudo.
Los Angeles Times - 10/10 by Kevin Thomas Few filmmakers juxtapose cruelty and beauty as audaciously as Japan's Takashi Miike. A master director with great style and panache, Miike's latest, 13 Assassins, is a classic samurai movie, right up there among the finest in the genre.
Boston Globe - 9/10 by Ty Burr Epic in scope, ambition, and execution, it's a classic swords-and-samurai film with postmodern blood and guts, and it's completely satisfying.
Variety - 9/10 by Leslie Felperin This at first slow-moving and then wildly kinetic actioner possesses a cool classicism that will appeal to offshore audiences as well as those at home.
The A.V. Club - 9/10 by Scott Tobias The great Kôji Yakusho stars as a revered samurai who decides that enough is enough, and sets about assembling the assassins of the title like a men-on-a-mission movie.
Washington Post - 9/10 by Sean OConnell Does Guinness World Records have an entry for longest on-screen fight? If it doesn't, Takashi Miike's 13 Assassins just set it. And if a record actually exists, Miike's film just broke it.
New York Post - 9/10 by V.A. Musetto A must-see for Miike's passionate legion of fans. But even action buffs who've never seen any of his films before will be drawn in by this masterful exercise in cinematic butchery.
The New York Times - 9/10 by Manohla Dargis A stirring, unexpectedly moving story of love and blood.
