Trivia

Manji is named after the symbol on his kimono in the original manga: the manji symbol being the Japanese Swazstika symbolising the cycle of life before it was bastardised by the Nazi regime. In the film the symbol is changed so as not to offend. In the original manga, manji has the symbol emblazoned on the earth of his kimono. See more »

Bloody human nature
29 November 2017 | by JithindurdenSee all my reviews

Almost plays out like a Greek tragedy but with a whole lot of bloody gore. When the film reaches the third act there are no more actual villains in there and the number of killings in this film might be good enough for a record. Yet, beyond the action, it still manages to touch on a lot of subjects on human nature.
