Blade of the Immortal is a beautiful film with fantastic sword fights and battles.
November 12, 2019
While it is stomach-churning in places, Blade of the Immortal is entertaining and delightfully insane.
September 1, 2019
A joyously sanguine time at the movies.
January 18, 2019
Blade of the Immortal is a wildly entertaining entry from Takashi Miike that proves that he can put his stamp on terms such as "excess" and "overkill".
December 14, 2018
Though this film isn't Miike's best work, it's still a solid genre piece and highly recommended for fans of his work or samurai film connoisseurs.
October 31, 2018
Like most of Miike's middle-of-the-road films, the details in between the obligatory story-filler and the money-shot fight scenes are a treasure trove of weird, small moments that reward your attention.
August 25, 2018
A gruelling, blood-soaked and often darkly comic samurai epic with a huge body count, Blade of the Immortal is an outrageous delight.
July 19, 2018
By no means is Blade of the Immortal Miike's best film - he would be hard-pressed to top some of his earlier greats - but it is still a remarkable work from one of the most prolific directors today.
April 24, 2018
Miike coolly combines a lavish historical epic with a cheeky romp, undermining over-serious action machismo with vividly knotty characters.
February 21, 2018
Boasting stunning action sequences, along with gorgeous direction, cinematography, production design, and costumes, Blade of the Immortal is a thrilling samurai adventure that will delight fans of Miike's work, as well as fans of the genre in general.
February 21, 2018
I went in expecting a B-movie, and I saw a modern samurai epic (at 140 minutes).
February 21, 2018
... 140 minutes have rarely added up to this much insanely wacked-out fun.
January 24, 2018
Blade of the Immortal is Miike's hyper-violent self at its finest and it proves that he is just as capable now as he has ever been.
December 27, 2017
... a classic story of revenge where a girl tries to eliminate those who killed their father with the help of an "immortal" warrior. [Full review in Spanish]
December 18, 2017
So if you're here for lots of sword work, acrobatic fighting and gruesome amputations, leavened by some wry humor and fantastic costumes, you're at the right place.
December 13, 2017
This Japanese samurai fantasy film with buckets of blood and coffins full of severed limbs, as well as some humor and a lot of sword fighting action, is brought to you by those who made '13 Assassins.'
December 11, 2017
An imaginative, gory, frenetic samurai carve-em-up, there's an irresistible energy about the project from the get-go.
December 11, 2017
In its own way, it's a movie with plenty of imagination, but the gory progress from fight to fight to fight is monotonous, and the running time is quite demanding for those of us stuck with finite lifespans.
December 10, 2017
It's a stylish slash fest, which delivers visceral thrills along with quietly striking moments of beauty.
December 8, 2017
This is gory, violent, often extremely witty and completely relentless.
