Default [Movie] Shinobi: Heart Under Blade


Quote:
In 1614, the Lord of the Lords is convinced that the shinobi clans are dangerous threats for keeping peace in his lands, and his advisor plots a Machiavellian plan to destroy their best warriors in a contest. Meanwhile, the young Iga Oboro and Koga Gennesuke fall in love for each other. When Oboro's grandmother and leader of Iga clan Ogen and Gennesuke's father and leader of the Koga clan Danjo kill each other, Oboro and Gannesuke must lead their warriors in the ultimate battle of the Shinobi clans.
Spoiler!



I just saw this a few minutes ago, and my eyes are still swollen. Yes, damn you, I baww'd my eyes out, but it's not this often that I find a movie I absolutely adore.

The plot was... unexpected. Perhaps I was too used to the usual humdrum, so finding depth was a surprise for me. The pacing was pretty decent, and managed to put in a lot of impressive action sequences while keeping the main plot and subplots moving. The main characters were portrayed with clearly distinct and clashing beliefs, but still carried off the sap (which normally would have sent me gagging). The cinematography's quite impressive; I've never seen a more subdued yet hauntingly beautiful Japan.

I would have liked more character and relationship development though, but I understand they had to squeeze in political intrigue, action, and romance in just 1 hour 40 minutes, though wouldn't have minded an extra 20 minutes.

(And good gosh, if they ever make an lolNaruto movie, they should take a page off this movie. The leading man has a freaking pseudo-Sharingan, and I ate it up like pie... So damn cool.)

Two thumbs up for me. If you have 2 hours to spare, go watch it. Like, NOW.

Sharingan = fail.

Koga Gennosuke = very win.

I haven't seen this movie, but I was watching Basilisk two years ago when this movie was being hyped. I can't remember if both the movie and the anime were based on another source, or if the movie was meant to be a live-action version of the anime. But, I enjoyed Basilisk, and I'm glad to see that you're rating Shinobi so highly, considering I'm usually skeptical about Japan's live-action interpretations of anything. So, I'll check this out sometime later today.
