The individual small parts of this movie worked (for the most part). It’s when you put them all together that something doesn’t quite fit.
There’s more silent staring than there is acting in this movie, except for that dragon/shapeshifter/witch/demon/lady who kept chewing up the scenery.
I never thought this would be a negative thing, but “2003 quality visuals” is the best way to describe the CGI here.
Do I even need to say that there’s none here? I’m guessing it’s obvious.
As much as I love all things Japanese history (fiction or not), there just isn’t enough of a good time to be had here to come back.
