Rurouni Kenshin Movie Review | Capsule Computers

"Without a doubt, the most anticipated film of the 16th Japanese Film Festival was Rurouni Kenshin, the live-action adaptation of the classic samurai manga. As with all adaptations they are ultimately compared to their source material, so how does Rurouni Kenshin stack up to it’s origins? Better than one could have hoped. Rurouni Kenshin is a non-stop thrill ride, the likes of which have not been seen in recent memory. This is how you handle an adaptation, much like Kenshin’s back-blade, with deft accuracy but enough creative spin on the norm to differentiate it. Rurouni Kenshin, isn’t just good. It’s damn good."

... that these manga/anime-based movies are turning out so great.

Bunny Drop is supposedly very good, same goes for the game-based Phoenix Wright movie, and now this movie has been getting rave reviews as well :)

Let's just hope all these movies will make it to the west uncut and in the original language.

Glad to hear how well this one is being received. Was afraid it would be another Yamato, which while being a visual feast could really have been better than it was.
