I am privileged to have watch the advance screening of Rurouni Kenshin (Samurai X) Live Action courtesy of HeroTV at SM North EDSA Cinema 7.  It was an amazing screening because you can see the high intensity of both Kenshin fans and also coslayers who love anime.  HeroTV was the first one to offer an advance screening of the movie.  Hero TV is aired via Skycable Channel 44.

Rurouni Kenshin Live Action Brief Summary:

Himura Kenshin was previously known as Battousai, the Manslayer, the reknowned and deadly assasin (hitokiri) of the ISHIN SHISHI during the Japanese revolution of 1867-1869.  After the revolution against the TOKUGAWA SHOGUNATE, Kenshin has ecided to atone for his past by becoming a wanderer, vowing never to kill another soul for the rest of his life and carrying a reverse blade sword (sakabatou) in order to help others who need of his protection.  About 10 years into the new Meiji era, while in Tokyo, Kenshin comes upon a young woman, Kamiya Kaoru, in need of his assistance, which he gives willingly.  Tired of his constant vagabond lifestyle, Kenshin finds himself staying at Kaoru's domicile at her invitation, of course.  There he forms several friendships and finds himself having new adventures and tribulations in the effort to protect those he cares about.

Rurouni Kenshin (Samurai X) Live Action Movie Review:

STORY: 10.  The story telling was well done from start to end.  You can clearly see and understand the background of Kenshin as well as where he is coming from.  His will and new enemies as well as the reason why he became a wanderer were all tackled.  It was as if you were watching a chapter of the anime itself and even better.



CHARACTER: 10.  I would say that each of the character from Kenshin Himura to Kaoru to Sanosuke Sagara and to Yahiko was played very well.  Although the backgrouner about Yahiko was not there it was still a well played characterization.  Sanosuke has an epic role in the movie a role which will never be missed in both the anime and the live action.

COHERENCE:  10.  Everything fitted perfectly.  The present time and the backgrounder of Batosai's story was well done.  Every single block was not left unturned although we can see in the end that definitely this movie deserves a continuation.

Fans awaits the start of Rurouni Kenshin Live Action advance screening by Hero TV
DEPTH:  10.  In this movie you will both discover and rediscover the reason why Kenshin became what he is and how he got the famous mark on his face.  For those who have not watched the anime I am sure that watching Rurouni Kenshin Live Action will make you watch the anime to continue the story.

MUSIC:  10.  Effective music.  The movie uses music progression and low - mid - high volume and also phasing.  The music greatly sets the tone and mode of every scene which is perfect.  I think that the music greatly added to the beauty of this film.


VISUAL EFFECTS:  10.  The fight scene were great, the war scene was simply amazing, as well as the demonstration of each of the technique of the Samurai and fighters present in the movie.  I would say though this is not a highly visual effects film it deserves a perfect rating.

POPULARITY:  7.  I would have made it 10 but the reality is that Rurouni Kenshin does not appeal to all audiences.  Like when I told in the office that I watch this great movie they were like having that confused look.  Of course those who love anime and into Otaku culture will know it readily but those who are used to western films might not know the movie.  But on top of that I am sure that when they watch this film they would equally see the beauty of Rurouni Kenshin Live Action.

RECOMMENDATION:  10.  I highly recommend the film to everyone be it an Otaku or not.  This is a film with a touch of Japanese history in it, great and amazing fight scenes and a movie in which you would not say that you wasted money.  Highly likable movie!

TOTAL RATING Rurouni Kenshin (Samurai X) Live Action:  96.25%


So get to know Kenshin Himura, Kaoru, Sanosuke, Yahiko, Saito and more in this epic movie, Rurouni Kenshin (Samurai X) LIve Action.  The movie will be shown EXCLUSIVELY ON SM CINEMAS beginning December 5.
