Yuck. Cheap, sensationalist dreck pretending to be high art. I love martial arts movies, and couldn't even watch the whole thing.

Shallow remake of the 7 Samurai by a director who substituted bloody martial arts action and grotesque sexual deviancy for skillful story telling and drama. Any comparison to Kurosawa is an insult to Kurosawa.

I went to this movie with extremely high hopes based on its reviews. It fulfilled none of them. Boring exposition, strangely choreographed fight scenes, bad effects, horrible sound. The viewer never gets to know any of the 13 assassins, the lead protagonist, or the story as a whole. If you want to see a good samurai film, might I suggest Akira Kurosawa?
