Rurouni Kenshin: The Final (るろうに剣心 最終章)
My Opinion – ⭐⭐⭐⭐★
Despite being the final film in the franchise chronologically,
One thing that sets the Rurouni Kenshin films apart from others that may seem similar is the incredibly well-choreographed action set pieces. Watching these sequences take place is like watching a manga’s pages come to life or an anime in live-action. Characters pulling off insane acrobatics, running along walls, and throwing each other throw structures seems almost natural and are completely unique in every way.
But, there is much more to the film than action set pieces and senseless fighting. The film is carried by a strong plot, enjoyable characters, and multi-layered performances from the actors. While I believe the pacing may be a bit slower than necessary for these more emotional scenes, never once did I feel bored or distracted – My eyes were glued to the screen from beginning to end.
I would highly recommend
