Azumi-2003-DVD-InsertFrom the directer of Godzilla: Final Wars and producer of Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust, bring you a samurai assassin movie you will enjoy. The movie is called Azumi. Azumi is young girl who is trained to be a assassin. In her beginning of the story, her mother died out in the desert. She was a little girl at the time when her mother died. There were a group of samurai who had kids that lost their family as well. The samurai raises Azumi, and all her life is her master. Azumi made friends with them. When she got older, her master want her to not be weak. The master wants Japan to be peaceful nation. So Azumi and her friends must help the master to bring Japan to peace. Could they do it? Find out when you are watching this movie.

This movie set in the 19th century. It was the time when the feudal Japan was ending. This set in the mid 1800’s. This movie has lots of blood. People said this is a bloodbath movie. Well, it is a bloodbath movie. Like most every samurai or ninja movies I watch has to have bloodbath scenes. My mom has never seen it this movie, but I don’t think she want to see it now.

I like sword fighting, the history of feudal Japan, and some cute girls. There are some cute Japanese girls in this movie, but most of them died. Azumi fights bandits, samurais, and ninjas. When I watched this movie, I saw Azumi mostly fighting bandits instead of Samurais and ninjas. The person who is playing Azumi is Aya Ueto. I heard she was in two movies, but she was doing voices acting in those two. The two she did voice acting was Speed Racer and Return To Neverland.

Azumi’s friend will die in this movie. Azumi was base on a manga from the mid 90’s and it ended at 2008. The year that was worst for everyone. I never read the manga. I just watched the movie, that’s it. I heard there is a Azumi video game, but it did not came to the U.S. I want to play it. That will be cool that Ezio from Assassin’s Creed II could help Azumi. That will be pretty cool right there. Azumi will learn more things from Ezio than her old master. If you like samurai action movies, you will like this movie. People said, Azumi sucks but I think it’s pretty good movie. This movie is way better than 300.

I give this film a Musing review of ★★★★★☆
