Critic Reviews for Onmyoji
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.
Rarely solemn or dull, and Takita holds its disparate parts together fairly well.
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 tone is loose and jokey enough to stave off heaviness.
Audience Reviews for Onmyoji
A.K.A. The Yin Yang Master, which sounds a bit rubbish. However, my wish to see this did not lead in me being disappointed. The effects and acting aren't always great, but they more than get the job done. In places it is slow paced, but I found the storyline interesting enough to overcome that, and the sets and costumes were really rather special. For me, the highlight was the appearance of a hannya, for which the make up was actually rather good.
