Critic Review - ReelTalk Movie Reviews

The fighting seems the same, repeated endlessly and unimaginatively and not different from what scores of such films offer. Without humor or originality, this is straight video game.

Just to play devil's advocate he said "straight video game" not "straight to video." It is odd though how he says the fighting seems the same when basically every other critic has praised how creative and varied it is

"Straight video game"? I'm not sure I can even dissect the stupidity of that statement.

This guy just doesn't like action movies, he even gave 13 Assassins a bad rating.

I would have given 13 assassins a bad rating, also. It's Seven Samurai for people who thought the main problem with Seven Samurai was too few Samurai.

And you would have been a fucking moron for giving 13 Assassins a bad mark... It's this guys opinion but still the only one that matters...

I take it you're not a Miike fan else you'd probably love 13 Assassins , besides lots of directors have borrowed styles or ideas from other contemporaries and improved open them. Anyone in almost every other artistic field from philosophy to cinema has tastefully done this in some way. Just look at Tarantino, The Cohen brothers, John Carpenter, Dario Argento, and Hitchcock, all of them took influence from other directors and films to make their own. For instance just compare John Fords westerns to Sergio Leone's. For me there's no way in hell you can call John Ford better than Leone.

I'm not trying to say Miike is better than Kirosawa just that i personally believe it's inaccurate to call 13 Assassins a lesser rehash of Seven Samurai, if anything they are both equally great and they both posses masterful and unique directorial craftsmanship.

you're the only one who said this movie is straight. I'm not sure you're judging this movie objectively.

Having seen the movie, this guy had to have seen a different movie. The action was consistently amazing and creative throughout the entire film, there's some really good humor placed in great moments, and this is in no way a "straight video game". This is as good as action movies get.

Senior citizen always had tendancy to worship great movie in their bliztering youth. So I understand if he say this movie is uncreative or something else.
