Leaving restraint and good taste at the door, Takashi Miike’s 100th film is brutal, unhinged and all the better for it. Based on the popular Manga series, Blade of the Immortal concerns Manji, a skilled samurai who is cursed with immortality.
Reminding him of his dead sister, Manji offers to help Rin get revenge against those who killed her family. With swimming pools’ worth of blood, Miike’s film might not be for the squeamish but it is ludicrously entertaining.
