Nice movie indeed. It feelt very "real" so to say even though they shot in New Zeeland I really got the japanese feel. Beautiful photo and good acting. Soundtrack is nice too. Loved the last battlescene.
Well watched it last night i thought it as brilliant, well worth a watch. Only problem was i could'nt stop going to the toilet for a piss which was annoying to say the least, having to guage when a boring bit was and leg it to the toilet and back without missing any of the "good" bits
Dunno if anyone said this yet as i cant be bothered to read all the comments, but the theme of the movie is not that original (think Dances with Wolves and Shogan) Other than that I had a great time watching it.
Loved every second of it. Didn't feel like I had been in the cinema for as long as I had. Fight scenes were amazing. The feel of the film was near perfect, as was the acting. As soon as I got back from the cinema I dug out Shogun - Total War and started a new game
Nnngh, i got really bored with this. Kept on staring at my watch, wondering when it would end. It just didn't really grab me by the balls, though some parts were really interesting, i just couldn't escape the feeling that i'd seen it all before.
I can see why it might not appeal to people though, that's why i was worried my girlfriend was gonna hate it. She used to be into stupid, fluffy teen "clueless" type films (she's only 18) but she loved it.
It's a bit like matrix revolutions, some people loved it; i thought it was so bad I thought it was actually a comedy and probably one of the worst films ever made.
