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
(***): [img]http://images.rottentomatoes.com/images/user/icons/icon14.gif[/img] Strange but very entertaining.
mostly plodding along, with too many plot elements that were lost on me on a tired evening. a pity they cast sanada as a villain, however ito stole the show as a pure, upright man.
Something is missing beyond the variable quality of the CGI-effects. What's missing is conviction, a sense that these are real people instead of actors in ornate costumes stepping gingerly through antique sets.
