The worst foreign film I have ever seen in the theater.

Certainly there are dueling wizards, torchlight swordfights and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon effects. But the moments of action are interspersed with lengthy plot developments that are hard to follow.

Should strike a strong chord among fans of Japanese period films, particularly those with a mythical, mystical bent like Ugetsu and Kwaidan.

Combustible Celluloid

Goofy and campy and unabashedly old-fashioned, from the silent-era acting technique to the overwrought direction.

Rarely solemn or dull, and Takita holds its disparate parts together fairly well.

What's missing is conviction, a sense that these are real people instead of actors in ornate costumes stepping gingerly through antique sets.

Crazier than a rat in a can, but certainly fun.

For Americans, accustomed to more polished effects and far more violent action, Onmyoji is bound to appear tame and a tiny bit precious.

The quality of the CGI-heavy special effects is variable ... but the demon zombies and Doson's cackling familiar are crowd pleasers.

The tone is loose and jokey enough to stave off heaviness.

An epic tale of love, sacrifice and redemption that attains a Shakespearean aura of grandeur and nobility of spirit.

Unless one is Japanese or seriously devoted to its culture, history and lore, a viewer will get immediately lost in this tale of supernatural phenomena.

Succeeds in visual splendor (it was shot on location in Kyoto) but falls flat on characterization.
