    poor effects, although Sanada and Ito gave a convincing performance.

    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.

    A semi decent period piece. The costumes and sets were wonderful. The acting was mediocre and the pace dragged, but the story itself was very interesting. It just needed to move a little bit faster for my taste.

    Often hard to tell if certain very campy aspects - e.g. the looks between Seimei and Hiromasa, the CGI, Doson's maniacal laughing - were intended as half-jokes, or are just really that campy.

    Cheesy effects and cheesier characters and plot for a fun japanese flick complete with: evil mad laughter, b-prosthetics zombie, shinto exorcisms, almost crossgendered buddies interplay, butterfly yokai with "mushi"-sized brain. Far from mundane.

    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.

    I really love this film! Think Harry Potter meets The Last Samurai. Not perfect, but a very talented cast who seem to really care about the characters and the story they're telling. Very entertaining.
