Scott Hardie: “It ruled.”

Miramax extended their history of wrong moves by chopping what would have been one of the most triumphant and visceral action films of the year into two halves, denying us a coherent masterpiece. In turn, I will deny this film the credit that it very much deserves. It‘s an empty premise for a film with artsy ambitions, this “tribute” to bloody samurai revenge epics, but Tarantino charges into it full-throttle, giving us 114 deaths, almost all of them accompanied by gushing fountains of blood. The many dramatic pauses eventually become tedious, but when the actors do move and speak, wow!
