At its core, Takashi Miike's Blade of the Immortal is a straightforward samurai revenge flick. However, built around that is the platonic, primal ideal of what a samurai movie can be. It's non-stop symphony of murder and steel filled with unbelievable weapons, gruesome amputations, rivers of blood, and charismatic warriors.
