"Some of you may know that this isn’t the first time I’ve been tasked with reviewing Rurouni Kenshin, a live-action adaptation of the legendary anime and manga of the same name. Last year we attended the 16th Japan Film Festival screening of the film which we reviewed. The difference between watching a film like this in a theater and watching it in the comfort of your own home can be vast. The atmosphere of a theater can add a great deal to the experience and it certainly did, but the home video experience has another edge altogether - intimacy.
Rurouni Kenshin is a film that works well as an intimate action adventure film. One that is propelled by unbridled energy and pulse-pounding excitement. It has a certain sense of closeness that lends itself well to the home video platform, making for a very involving experience. An experience you’ll want to relive and I can wholeheartedly say that this is a film you’ll be watching over and over, it is just that much fun."
