Tak Sakaguchi's Yoroi: Samurai Zombie has got pieces to work with, but somehow can't get them to connect together.
With the title that this film has it isn't that difficult to figure out what will be offered in just under 90 minutes. It does deliver some humor, creepy chills, and even some action; however, none of it is exceptional, let alone entertaining. The characters lack sufficient development and the plot details are very thin, although the unveiling of the story at the ending clears up a number of things. Still, it isn't worth sitting through 90% of the film for.
The violence is over the top gory with some so-so bloody effects. The action, which is mostly gun and swordplay, isn't great. This is a huge disappointment coming from a Tak Sakaguchi film of this genre.
The acting is excessive at times and it fits right in there with the wacky characters. Airi Nakajima and Nana Natsume are sexy, but no one really stands out and this is because none of the characters are likable.
Yoroi: Samurai Zombie is everything as expected and yet not everything as expected. In other words, it is worth skipping for something else.
