13 Assassins

While I was intrigued by the choreography in the long fight scene. I found this movie very graphic and bloody. I also learned it was a burden to be a samari. I found a parallel with this movie and Pan Labrynith, in that they set up in the beginning who the bad guy is and why he will be  or needs to be killed in the end.


  1. This film is actually a bit less bloody than many of the action films made today. The fact that it seemed that way to you might be a testament to the skill of the filmmakers. Editing, choreography and sound design can do wonders to enhance our imaginations.

    1. Action films are not the genre of films I usually watch, because of the violence and the bloodiness. I tend to gravitate to dramas and love stories.
