This review is from: Bunraku [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
I was wary of this movie before viewing it, it had gone under my radar and so I expected a low budget action movie no different to any others spewing from the bowels of tack recently. Pleasantly surprised doesn't come near it.
The film is beautifully shot. It seems crazy on first glance, very much 'Sin City-meets-Clockwork Orange-meets-Ninja Assassin', but the plot has tonnes of potential and with names like Woody Harrelson and Ron Perlman thrown into the cast list, it doesn't fail to deliver.
The details of this film are what make it, and are more like signatures, flares of creativity. From the clicking of the stranger swiping his hat, to the trumpet bursts of every strike and the brilliant insanity of killer #2, you will fall in love with each touch and quickly become as eager about this gem as I.
This is taking its rightful place as one of my favourite movies of all time. Hands down.
