I might consider writing my thoughts on the movie, but hey! Look at Kou Shibasaki wanting to break through in those frames. For a moment there I thought she might actually kill someone.
Especially Tadanobu Asano and Rinko Kikuchi.
I was expecting some bit of energy burst where she actually grabs Keanu’s sword and does some killing. But, oh well. I guess it could’ve been worse. As it is, I imagine fictional Japan gets struck with the gender-imbalance epidemic and Kou ends up as the Shogun . Ta-da!
