Highlights were the acting, screenplay and visual effects. On the downside, its fantasy aspect felt out of place. Themes of alienation, loyalty, partial rule-ship, love and a masters vengeance was in full display. If only there was more of the depth of the romance. Nice touch when they invaded the wedding. Felt this was immensely better than 300 which was more ludicrous male testosterone nonsensical violence. If only the fantasy angle was played in the beginning then it would have been a different ball game. Everything started so serious when Kai was adapted. Definitely worth seeing for action/samurai fanatics who dig stunning cinematography, war strategies and a mix of action/fantasy.
