13 Assassins

Acclaimed cult director Takashi Miike's remake of the 1963 Japanese film delivers a bravado period action piece set at the end of Japan's feudal era. When the sadistic excesses of Lord Naritsugu (Goro Inagaki) grow too extreme, a group of his own samurai are enlisted to assassinate him and end his deadly reign. Led by master samurai Shinzaemon Shimada (koji Yakousho) the 13 Assassins trap Lord Naritsugu, culminating in an epic battle with 200 of his best soldiers."13 Assassins" has what many action pictures need, a villain who transcends evil and ascends to a realm of barbaric madness." - Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
