Is it possible to fall in love with a movie?
I just did.
I’d never thought that I would ever see a live action version of my favorite cartoon series Samurai X. Exclusively released by SM cinema, I made sure that I watch it the first week.
I was just so glad that I did. And this movie delivered on so many level:
1. Perfect casting for the males – Kenshin, Sanosuke, Saito
3. The action sequences were AMAZING. And Kenshin’s transition from being a good for nothing wanderer to the fierce legendary samurai is superb. And his swiftness is so believable too.
Although frankly, I would have wanted it to be dubbed in English (I hate subtitles). But I guess, releasing it in its original language makes it much more authentic and faithful to its origin.
I just hope that the producers had the good sense to make a part 2. Please, please...
