3.0 out of 5 stars Oh, it's finished already!, 13 Oct 2003
This review is from: Kai Doh Maru [2001] [DVD] (DVD)
Maybe I'm a little cynical - my reviews never seem to score more than 3 stars - but this film just does not deserve the merit it has recieved. True, the animation style is beautiful and refreshing but it is also tiring on the eyes. The three friends who watched the film with me all got tired of straining through the fuzzy-focus effect that this style creates (and no, it's not my TV - it's a 32" HDTV). Like it's predecessor, the film is guilty of style over content: the plot seems limited, the story is short and the conclusion is unfulfilling. Like Blood, it felt like a long trailer, and while I was waiting for it to get going...it ended. I so wanted to enjoy this film, and I think 3 stars actually reflects that: If I didn't love anime so much it would get a 2. Kai Doh Maru is a thing of beauty and a work of art in it's own right...but so is the Mona Lisa, and that doesn't make much of a film either.
