My Buddy, Mr J. Christopher Wilson is reviewing some movies and series. He has agreed for us to post his reviews here.
Based on the manga, BLADE OF THE IMMORTAL is a samurai film about revenge and lots of it. While buckets of blood abound, an interesting story unfolds as character after character seeks revenge. Some are for politics and power and others are to avenge the wrongs of evil men. There’s no lack of evil doers here nor is there a lack of those seeking retribution.
Sword play abounds with a plethora of weapons, and the politics of tradition and the dogo vs dogo and competing fighting styles plays a big role.The squeamish need not stream BLADE OF THE IMMORTAL as the blood thirsty samurai clan are the intended audience here. For those who love limb-lobbing as well as streams and pools of red-dyed high fructose corn syrup will enjoy this clash of clans.
