Odagiri Joe's phantom.
If there are parts that can be praised with this work, it is this place.

The story starts from the place where Azumi begins to kill each other at the command of Tsukisa who received the life of assassination killing.

First of all, looking at the action, Azumi talks without taking a battle attitude when fellows are killing each other, thugs are beginning to kill each other avoiding the azale,
From the beginning, with this kind of condition, finished in a TV game style with a matrix-like effect on the movement without sharpness, so the gouge gudda feeling drifts further drifted out.

Even if I look at casting, there are only those who can not be said that they are suitable for historical drama, such as Aya Ueto, Takatoshi Kaneko, Hiroki Narimiya, Shinji Suzuki, and so on.
Besides, the protagonist acts with a value that does not differ from that of modern people, even though it is a historical drama, the characters do not change from modern dramas,
It was a problem before the failure of the work.

Stoppage is that thanks to the screening time of more than 2 hours the piece has not gone further.

A crowd that is opposite to the actors who lead actors who lead the lead actors will raise the work to further height It is wasted to the good part in the form that the surroundings fit to a handsome panda handsome,
Is it a pattern that tends to be a Japanese movie in recent years?

The scene where the main character Azumi Ueto who plays Azumi is said to be dressed in a girlfriend 's kimono with a beautiful kimono, "A sword does not suit a sword" is too much in a bad meaning.
In short it means that you do not feel the aura of a woman terrorist who was charged with assassination from an early age.
(Moreover, letting the woman travel alone by parting with the hero to be attacked by burglars after this, such as scripts Gudaguda)
And this scenes that Moon Sakuse acting Yoshio Harada acting immediately after this is going to attack Kato Kiyomasa's Honjin is the main work, the only sight.
The majority of the subordinates drop off due to death or separation. People who followed and accompany themselves also hurt towards the target while injured,
This is the hard boiled era drama, the battle scene where the heroine is not entangled can be seen most is also to the later "ICHI"?
However, in "ICHI" heroin is bogged down by a villain, etc. It is not absolute (comparatively) mashi, but this work gets angry because it is made to be the stepping stand of the hero who will demonstrate cheat ability in the final stage.

Azumi going into the main troops flying right in the morning and going into the great army to the main shrine where the lunar exorcised moon Susae is captured.
It is no longer a gag in CG actions that seems to be whether Harry, Halen 's puppet animation (which is an art because it is a battle of humans versus creatures!) Is nothing to convince that actor' s ability to sway in the action of the actor 's sword.
You can use it quickly Take out a gun later and hire a fellow of enemies by erroneous firing on a side of a soldier who is hired,
Azumi confronting the beautiful woman without disturbing her breath even though it is a considerable continuous battle until then.
Azumi who assassinate Kaito Kiyomasa on the sea after the showdown and returns to the final battlefield in a short time ....

By watching the ending, I felt that the story itself stronger than two hours would have no meaning if such a Musou heroin. Evaluation is "worst".

Actually, this movie is the first time I touched the work of "Azumi".
Thanks for inviting a friend, I went to see the preview of this movie.

[good point]
It is bad but nothing.

[Bad point]
There were extremely unpleasant things such as episodic killing with friends who grew up like brothers until yesterday.

I could not find justification for reasons to live in a fighting world.

The enemy character was also impressed.

Both action scenes and stories, honesty, empathy could not be done.

After watching this movie, I read a manga version,
I felt a gap between the direction of the original author and the direction of the producers of this movie.
"Do not let the idols kill you" ... It was such a feeling.

[Comprehensive evaluation]
If only this were, I would have evaluated it as [very bad].
However, at the time of the preview, director says "This movie will change Japanese movie!", It was made languish and so I was seriously expected.
As a result, there was a big disappointment.
With that thought in mind, I will assume [worst].

At that time I was looking forward for it because Mr. Odagiri Joe acted as a beautiful woman's round role.
There was a part that charm of this person somewhere, and I was deeply moved by being selected as a role of beautiful woman with a little habit.
Actually, he did the performance I expected, and I was able to see interestingly because the original beautiful Maru Marashi has appeared.

However, I felt that there are many other things that I can not evaluate much other than that.
First of all, the scene of Azumi's sword fight as the original work is wonderful every time.
I was excited to see how to make it with movies ... I was a bit disappointed.
I wonder what it is like, Chamera, or the last scene was not very impressive.
It is my impression that I was in vain CG too much and had become a scene where the original human nature did not convey at all.

This is not limited to just this movie, but it has become possible to clean up the movie itself with the latest technology, but there are many things that have not been produced corresponding to that.
Since the aspect of technology is already full, I thought that I would like you to make a movie fascinating with the inner part of the story etc.

However, since this movie was able to enjoy until the end as usual, I will say "Good".

Before the story and the swordsman, I was curious that the enemy is too weak.
Rather, Azumi is too strong.
In this work, there is no depiction that Azuma struggled hard and fought.
It is only beautiful woman circle that could fight against Azumi in the normal way and others are basically being hurt by the other party.
Since you can not expect for battle portrayal, pay attention to the story, the problem is noticeable also here.
Although it is a point that "assault" and streamlines assassination and murder in one word of "mission", I do not think that Azumi understands this "mission".
In addition, it is doubtful whether it was meaningful that the scene of being killed and killing fellows who grew up like brothers until yesterday was killed by friends! What did those slain-slaughtered over there live for ... ....
Although bad points stand out, it is still not without a point of interest, so the evaluation is "normal".

Especially works that do not remain in impression.
Although the original is sometimes browseable, I'm wondering what will happen next time, and since the series has been running for quite a long time I know that it is a good work.
Although it is impressive in manga, the movie did not remain particularly impressive.

And the cast is bad.
Ueto Aya will not exist ....
I thought that there was no one else there.
To be sure to have a boyish part, Ueto will also be Ali, but Azumi is more beautiful compared to Azumi ....
To make matters worse 2 things Kuriyama Chiaki are coming out.
Kuriyama Chiaki more resembles azuma, and I wish I was honestly Azumi Kuriyama Chiaki.
Considering topicality and publicity, I understand that Ueto is above but Azuma is somehow sorry.
Of course I have not seen 2.

Therefore, it is usually bad.

Since original manga only sees touching degree, it is not in evaluation of comparison.
Recent Japanese movies seems to boom of making a cartoon original era drama chamber ra movie. This "Azumi" "Dororo" "SHINOBI" (Original Bashirisuku) has been continuously visualized. But,,,,
For the time being, Kore was the most severe ?? 2 was also made but it is unviewed. Is it a popular celebrity idol promotion movie that Ueto wanted to make a masterpiece in the movie?
There is no sadness like the original, and the scene of a movie copy of "200 people cut" continues to the same extent as the theater party. Although the villain beautiful woman circle of the last person had quite an atmosphere ,,,
Evaluation is "very bad". Is it not hard except for fans?
Personally, I do not dislike Ueto. Although it is good impression that CM etc. are impressed ,,, How about letting you act as a starring as long as you see such movies and drama "Aim for Ace" and "Shimokita Sundays" ?,,,

I rarely watch Japanese movies, but I was forced to see my friends.
Because I saw without expecting too much, I enjoyed myself very much.
Perhaps it was accepted smoothly because it did not read the original (^ ^;
I thought Aya Ueto would be such an act.
That's why I like it. This movie.

Speaking of being unavoidable, it is the end, but it is not as daunting as the original. Or none at all.
It is sad that the expression of the actor is not transmitted more than the expression of Yuu Koyama. It can not be helped with Atsuko Ueto's performance skill .......

As usual, the director has put too much power in the chamber laboratory, and others are neglected.
Odagiri Joe was good only because it turned out that various roles could be handled in this movie.

I think that Mr. Ueto 's performance was also a bit difficult to understand. I think that the inner feelings and anguish were not fully expressed.
However, I think that Mr. Ueto is not bad, it is the responsibility of the director who was unable to complete her charm.

Besides, as for the story also, those who were friends in the beginning part were suddenly developed to killing each other, so for me who has not read the manga, it is too rapid and it can not keep up I felt.

Odagiri 's acting was very wonderfully shining. Odagiri felt that the swordsman is very good. Odagiri 's madness expression was very good.

A girl and a thug.
Work that made the interest interesting in that tagline.

Early in the beginning,
In the first mission killed the most friendly person,
Get off the mountain to see the bandits attacked the villagers at the foot.
This was an expansion not seen elsewhere, and I was made to expect it.

However, he showed his skill that he could not see strongly, and a little disappointed.
Because of that, the samurai who are thrilled by the assassins looks even weaker, even more discouraged.

There, in the latter half, Momentum was regained by Mogami Bisho Maru,
He showed us some kind of fun with 200 unlimited azami cuts,
I think that overall was good.

Although the recent Japanese movie may be a part of it, I was thinking that some works with objects that shine glaringly came out and I personally thought that it might be bright beforehand, I think I'm stuck in a dark cloud in the future of the movie world w w w w

Even just a historical drama I think that the skill of the actor is required. So how do you think about what I have to do with words I do not use in my normal life.
I think that it is understandable that only the extent of this movie can be taken after all the low level actors who can act satisfactorily even in ordinary modern words, even if they can not satisfy the feelings of words or talking methods can be satisfied I do not mind ...

The reason I used Aya Ueto as a starring was that I thought about the current popularity and the ability to attract customers, and even if I still allow it, I would like to have a certain degree of ability in the circumference.
Only four of Harada, Takenaka, Ibuki, Odagiri were acting properly ... too little

The thugs are the main characters, so many chanla scenes are there, but the fighting also lost the impression with no force and wanted to devastate the dangerous swordsman or not? I put in just the effects and turned tea muddy.
I do not need a flashy bombing scene in a casual drama Playing sweat It is the main assassination scene if the main character is sweat It is not supposed to come out so much,
That's not a thug but just a swordsman (explosion)

Even though I do not care about casts or original works, this director, a bit of skill shortage I do not remember names in bad meaning (lol)

There are only enemy Ichare characters, and it seems that development of Ueto Aya fans is pleased from the middle [modern style why talking also is somehow like 200 azumi cuts]. In addition, Asano Nagamasa and Kato Kiyomasa are being killed too much .... Both of them are not very conscientious warriors, but Kato Kiyomasa is a reality and leaves a number of anecdotes [On the young day there were the achievements of the seven spears, I exiled the tiger by himself and sent it to Hideyoshi There is also a legend that]
I guess there will not be such a way to be killed ... ... [bitter smile] Evaluation is the worst because there was such depiction and it made me feel uncomfortable.

Although I have not read the original, it is inferred that it would betray the original work splendidly just by glancing at this movie.
It's as wicked movie as ever.
Contents that do not have any remembrance in the end although I expect to be a protagonist, Zorozoro and dirty world depictions that do not have enough power to play a role, but also a message coming to my mind.
I was in trouble.

In the first place, there is an original that you want to film, you should start with what kind of casting you need to direct and describe it effectively,
Is the procedure of production reverse of causality?
In other words, it is a way to set aside the popular idol for the time being without any talent, and forced search into a single movie (idol's promotion movie) by searching for the original which she will paint anyway.
The actor, it is blasphemy against viewers.
If you are doing this kind of things in Japanese movies!
I do not want to run on commercialism, and I want you to work a little more seriously.

I think I felt many of the original fans cried because of Aya Ueto's dame tammer play.
It is undeniable to feel the sense of running in a distorted direction trying to forcibly slash the sword and bring it closer to the original.

Although someone who does not know the original may be able to see it so much, it is difficult to say that it could be made well for compliments, while Diykon acting is not only Aya Ueto, but the current film world and actor training are in a neat form I doubt even whether it is being watched.

Because the original is popular, the recent epidemic of being a live, animated movie, live action is only at the commercial level, does not it seem that the movie is not regarded as one art piece?

Even Kitamura Ryuhei and Kaneko Shusuke seemed to have been unable to cover the quality of Hetapi actor as the original and with the goodness of production.

Is it possible to say that the current Japanese movie that we have created so far captures the viewpoint of entertaining people who are the main points of the movie?

1 was fairly funny, but 2 of the sequel is bad.
〓〓〓There is no charming enemy character like 1 Biku Maru.
〓〓〓ppeared "Anzumi" Ana in "Azumi".
〓〓〓eiko Takashima's playful doll playing ninja's costume and Osaka dialectic textual suddenly "It's a monkey!"
〓〓〓ecause meaningless scenes are not depicted for a long and crucial part, each character does not stand, and the whole is Gusuzuzu.
〓〓〓herefore, I do not know which side is Death or Love 〓〓〓he previous work, the scene of the fighting that was the only salvation, this time the coach of Shusuke Kaneko has failed.

That is the disadvantage of 2.

Ueto, it is really radish.
And the whole movie, poor performance of the swordsman. Even though it was a highlight, the missing streak appeared. Although it may be somewhat different as I saw it in a movie theater.

It was just an azalea, which is just a flat plate drawing the development along the original including battle between fellows and battle scenes with numerous enemies and so much different from the original image. Ueto Aya was disappointingly different from the image of the original Azumi.

It seems that Aya Ueto's evaluation is not so good, but it looks good as an idol movie.
I feel good that the name scene of the popular original could be realized faithfully in real life.

Just 142 minutes of screening time is too long to say difficult.
If you delete unnecessary scenes within 2 hours, the completeness as "movie" should have gone up.
It is unnecessary to clearly cut the 200,000 people.

I saw it on the bus on the way back from f ^^;
I was tired and wondering if I'm going to bed, I was watching while thinking about it,
It was pretty fun to say that it was seen to the end by whatever it was.

Of course, the sword fight will be inferior compared to the real era play,
It was not enough to feel uncomfortable,
I think that the story also proceeded steadily and it was good to have a sense of speed.

It is an amazing performance of Odagiri Joe's crispy appearance.

My friend bought this DVD, so I saw it together, but honest stories,
I could not say that it was interesting to look at. It was rather frustrating.
It might just be that it did not suit my skin. By the way I have not seen the original.

Although Aya Ueto was originally unfavorable, I dislike more when I saw this movie.

Evaluation is a little tough, but I make it "very bad".

The performance of Aya Ueto was totally unattractive and it was not interesting to see It might have felt a little more fun if the leading role was another person

If the original is a novel or a manga, it is getting better but the depictions are too few, so the development of the story is too early.
I think that the action seems to be a good feeling with image technology somewhat.
Personally, the role of Mr. Odagiri Joe was a jar.
That one became useful for the feeling like actor !! It was scary.
It was more impressive than Azumi.
However, I think that the story is too thin as I thought by looking at Azuma after all. Because it is such a special kind of person, I feel that I can emphasize more emotions.
Overall, I feel I rely too much on actions.

It seems that this movie seems to make the enemy character too dark and the hero team is not noticeable. It is like Odagiri plays a beautiful curriculum especially when the character is dense and the hero is hung up .... I do not burn anyhow.

I'm just swinging terrible swords I think this is my prediction but probably I do not think I know something like that at all ...
No matter how much this is too cruel ... this time it's too bad that the sword swings and blood gets out at the end of the movie, the last 200 people are outstanding only outstanding but person who counts 200 people in a movie theater is absolutely I do not think so. So I do not feel anything amazing even if I promote "Last cut 200 shocks".
And the costume is strange. I wonder what exactly is the age?

I disliked himself. As you said, the action was too bad and it was useless. I could only imagine that it was such a childish kid. Do not let such an amateur like Aya Ueto. It is said that no one will have a hard time if it can get an academy like this. I thought that it is unnecessary for CG wipe. I thought that this person was as good as anyone else's sleep (really sorry about the fans) It is not a matter of talk but as I am a fan of Odagiri Joe, I feel sorry for that role (really It does not matter.) Looking at Azumi could only be thought of as a movie made for fans of Aya Ueto. Based on these, I will do it the worst. I want you to learn more various era movies. It is a movie for idol fans though I drew on this.

I saw it from the way I was doing today ...
(Keeping the confusion of the story) Odagiri Joe was seriously scared (meaning scary is different). I am not sure of this person "I do not know where to go" (I'm sorry for the fans) ... I was scared of rabbits. Something seems to come.
