    Re: Rurouni Kenshin Live Action Film

    I encourage everyone who is a fan of the Rurouni Kenshin manga and anime to check this out. I'm generally not a fan of live action adaptations of anime or manga, but this one is excellent. The action is incredibly well done, and you'll notice how the movements and even in some cases signature moves...are near perfect equivalents of the manga/anime. The soundtrack is epic, and quite emotional...screenplay very well written and the casting couldn't be better.

    Even if you never read or watched Ruruoni Kenshin before...I would recommend this film. It is that good.
