Watch: ‘Blade of the Immortals’ Promises Incredible Samurai Sword Fights and Lots of Gore

As an anime fan, I was overjoyed to hear that there will be a live-action movie of the Blade of the Immortal, which is about a Samurai cursed with eternal life. He must kill 1,000 evil men to regain his mortality. In his journey, he meets a young girl, Rin, who hires him to help her take revenge on the swordsmen who slaughtered her family.

I was also overjoyed to find out that it will star Takuya Kimura, whose Jdoramas and movies I follow. He just happens to be one of Japan’s most famous actors.

Directed by Takashi Miike, a director who is notorious for extremely violent movies, the movie promises lots of choreographed sword fights and lots of gore. Blade of the Immortal is Takashi’s 100th movie.

Watch:

Oh, my. There sure were lots of outlandish weapons and quite a number of dismemberments.
