Plot

Orphan Azumi (Aya Ueto) is brought up in war-torn feudal Japan as an assassin. She is trained by Master G along with 10 of her fellow orphaned male assassins to kill two rival warlords - this is for the purpose of bringing peace to the nation. After completing their training, Master G has one final test for the 10 assasins. The 10 assasins are to pair off with each other and have one final battle to the death, leaving only 5 assassins. With their mission set, Azumi and the other surviving assassins journey out to decapitate the rival warlords.

Regi Amos One of the best film's I have ever seen. I truly would love to see another (pt.3) with Aya Uteo in her same role.

pj Shogo Roxxx!!!!!

Ki Obviously this movie was not inspired by any of Akira Kurosawa’s films. The movie comes from a popular Japanese manga and seems to have been inspired by the fast cut-and-paste action sequences favored by the A.D.D./MTV generation. One complaint about the movie would be the aweful soundtrack used in the film. I did not mind placing contemporary music in a film set in the 1800’s, but I did mind placing bad contemporary music in a film set in the 1800’s (1980s type of heavy metal music played in a sterile muzak form). Besides that, I enjoyed the movie for what it was, alot of mayhem caused by a J-pop singer in a mini skirt and her sword.

Flix Azumi was an entertaining movie; with a touch of artistic humanism

Mister JONES One of my favorite chanbara movies. I can watch this one quite a few times. A great balance of story and action and cuteness.

Nalyah Actually I was disappointed by this movie. I enjoy marital arts and fantasy attachments, but this one was too much on the brutal side and less on the ‘plot side’ as for my taste. I also agree about the music- it was really nice, but didn’t really fit this particular movie.
