Reviews

Japanese CGI-enhanced martial arts adventure. In 17th-century Japan, ninja Kamui (Ken'ichi Matsuyama) decides that he wants to leave the lethal laws of the ninja fraternity behind him and seek true personal freedom. Unfortunately, Kamui knows only too well that the only escape from the ninja fraternity is through death. Now a fugitive on the run from his fellow ninjas, who are duty-bound to hunt him down and eliminate him for his betrayal, Kamui finds himself desperately fighting for his life and unable to trust anyone.

Previous reviews temporarily put me off buying this film, but when I did it was nothing like as bad as expected! Probably if I'd expected it to be brilliant I would have been disappointed. If you are expecting a bona fide ninja film or top class action sequences then you will be disappointed. The film is best in the non action areas and the story is good and well acted. It is an effective drama with plenty of emotion and a little pathos. It is nowhere near as bad as some of the reviews make it out to be and I can recommend it.

Kamui is one of those very rare films where..... you switch it off out of complete boredom and annoyance!!! Oh yes the film is so dire that I didn't even want to waste a further hour of my life so I switched it off halfway through!!!
Being a MASSIVE martial arts fan and particularly of those from Japan AND also a Kenichi Matsuyama fangirl I had high expectations for Kmaui. There I was expecting something between Death Note and Azumi but in the first 5 minutes I knew I wasn't going to be getting that at all. Firstly all the fights scenes I managed to watch were truely terrible because they were simply CGI generations without any skill being involved. Too many wires and dodgy graphics were used to make up for the fact that none of the actors knew the first thing about screen fighting. Frankly it was painful to watch! Then there were many unecessary uses of CGI... running deer in the woods, birds, back flips... all things that would have been better shot in live action and probably a whole lot easier and cheaper too!!!
But the main down point (as if the shoddy fake fights weren't bad enough) was the truely hateful narrative. This lone Ninja gets into a couple of scapes, gets washed up on some island and saves a bloke called Hanbi who was sentenced to death for cutting off some lord's horse's leg. Personaliy I would have been happy to see Hanbi get a good beheading for that so Kamui saving him seemed really pointless as you ahve no real sympathy for the charcater's imminent death. Then as they escape by sea they are attacked by sharks (yes attacked by awful CGI sharks) and THEN saved by pirates... ooohhhh yesss sharks and pirates in a martial arts film!

I agree totally with Tabula Rosas review. The front of the Dvd says " probably best Nibja film ever". A ninja film with hardly any fighting !Boring throughout and never gripped for a moment. Worst Ninja film is better title.

I was hoping this title would be a movie to keep or dying to see. The feeling it gave me was a bit confusing - I didn't hate it nor did I was really amazed by it.

It kinda fell short of my expectation...

The story - it was good, the typical ninja story: kill or be killed. It's about a boy who was trained since a young boy to be a ninja assassin. When he grew up he didn't want to kill anymore so he ran away. So there it begins a circle of other ninja assassins trying to assassinate him.

The narrative was interesting in the beginning - it was a mixed of still montages and scenes. But the story got a bit slow in the middle. It got into the emotions of Kamui when other characters came into his life.

I was hoping for a bit more action, it did have action - loads of running and jumping and flying around. The visual FX is so appalling. It really reminded me of the classic Godzilla film where the motions just looked superficial. I don't think they even tried to hide the fact that the VFX wasn't great.

I think I had so much expectations before seeing this film, I was quite disappointed when it didn't deliver. I was expecting this to be as good as Dororo [DVD] [2007]. I did enjoy the story, just the execution falls a bit short for me.

A 3 out of 5 from me.

The start is cheesy but forgivable and some great classic mystical ninja traits and special attacks, very anime. But before long cool fight scenes end and so ensues a crap love interest and some boring story that almost seems like a filler from an anime, though you have to see the CGI sharks for a laugh. The end is disappointing the final fight scene is so anti-climatic I was shocked it had ended. Not worth your time and the blu-ray quality is meh.
