Movie Info

Based on the best-selling action comedy manga by Hideaki Sorachi, GINTAMA takes place in an alternate Edo-period Japan, where an Alien race has taken control, forcing Samurai to lay down their swords. Once feared as the "White Demon," former samurai Gintoki Sakata now works as an everyday handyman--until a master swordsman tasks Gintoki and his friends with finding the cursed sword Benizakura to keep it from falling into the wrong hands. Packed with the sword-swinging sci-fi action and offbeat humor that have made the manga a classic, GINTAMA is bound to delight both fans and anyone looking for a journey to a visually-stunning universe where fantastical action lurks just around every corner.

Critic Reviews for Gintama

All Critics (4)

Despite visual charm... the movie still suffers from many of the pitfalls of a big-budget American superhero joint: self-conscious in-jokes, bloated runtime and bad CGI.

Aug 27, 2018 | Rating: 2.25/5 | Full Review…

While this chaotic mash-up of sci-fi and period drama aesthetics triggers a relentless sugar rush of visual stimuli, Gintama proves an exhausting and alienating experience for the uninitiated.

This film adaptation does not take itself seriously, which is a good thing, but, on the other hand, it can come across as scattershot.

Aug 2, 2017 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

Oguri spends much screen time with finger inserted in nostril prospecting for nose gold, one of several gross running gags.
