Critic Reviews for Lady Snowblood (Shurayukihime)

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (1) | Fresh (7)

  • Lady Snowblood only half-heartedly revels in its heroine's bloody revenge, while focusing just as much on the tragedy of her circumstances and the absurdity of her vengeful fate.

    September 25, 2012
  • More than just a bloody revenge movie, though it certainly is that, a number of thematic strands and political critiques run beneath pulp surface.

    July 3, 2020 | Rating: A- | Full Review…
  • A violent cult film that maintains in its undercurrent a sly humor and a feeling that this is a special revenge film.

    October 24, 2016 | Rating: B | Full Review…
  • a film of rich texture and beauty that combines all manner of gonzo artistry from both stage and screen

    January 19, 2016 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Snowblood's violence is almost balletic.

    January 12, 2016 | Full Review…
  • Blood sprays, limbs fall, bodies are chopped in half -- business as usual in this moderately diverting feudal Japanese revenge story, enlivened by peculiar plot twists and offbeat cinematic flourishes that greatly influenced Quentin Tarantino.

Audience Reviews for Lady Snowblood (Shurayukihime)

  • Jul 19, 2011
    Films like I Spit on your Grave don't even come close to these revenge flicks made here. What can i say? Great acting (Or even BETTER!) cool action story with pleanty of gore and violence. Fucking awesome soundtrack. Nice costumes and themes...ECT. Though i liked the second more.

    There will never be such a beautiful, badass, stylishly looking, cold-blooded and fatal assassin like Meiko Kaji, nor will ever be a more original revenge story with a lady whose color kimonos attract even the eyes of the characters and whose sword concealed in her now iconic umbrella that establishes new pulp boundaries. This is the definitive twist genre even among the most hardcore samurai-movie fans of the time. I rest my case. 98/100

    A classic Japanese film that is a clear basis and gigantic inspiriation for Quentin Tarantino`s Kill Bill. ``Lady Snowblood`` does have it`s differences, but theres no doubt that this is a really good story about revenge. It`s a great movie and it gets a high recommendation from me!

    Really Damn cool. Tarantino basically stole everything from this film put Uma Thurman in it and called it Kill Bill.
