Story Somewhere in the near future of cold Japan, the House of Takemikazuchi, a group of matchless assassins lie in wait within their amoral world. Once royal guards to rulers of a neighboring kingdom, they became expatriates due to modernization. Now, they are assassins for hire, willing to kill anyone with a price on their head, attempting to stay afloat in a world where the art of the sword is slowly dying, and even when honor and loyalty amongst the ranks of the Takemikazuchi drift away in the bitter air of Japan.
Review http://www.kfccinema.com/reviews/swordplay/princessblade/princessblade.html SHURAYUKI HIME is a raw and powerful stroke of style and conviction, bordering aesthetic grittiness and raising the samurai drama to the next plateau. It is an interesting idea in remaking the Kazou Koike manga of the same name and launching it into a futuristic, darker Japan. Even in its shadowy setting, filled with an apocalyptic atmosphere and drenched in urban molestation, the themes and motifs of the old school samurai films of Kurosawa and Inagaki still remain. With Donnie Yen in the mix choreographing the swordplay and action, it'll definitely raise the bar of expectations for those who'll see the film. Without a doubt, Yen does deliver as he throws the inferno gauntlet down for anyone who can try and match his inventive, anarchic sword work and almost anime-like agility in creating some masterful battles.
