YesAsia Editorial Description

Popular actor Matsuyama Kenichi (Detroit Metal City) plays a ninja on the run in Blood and Bones director Sai Yoichi's latest film Kamui. Co-scripted by acclaimed screenwriter Kudo Kankuro, the period action film is based on Shirato Sanpei's manga about a fugitive ninja hunted by his former comrades. An exciting blend of fantasy, action, and historical adventure, the film surrounds Matsuyama's lone brooding ninja with spectacular CGI and a star-studded cast that includes Koyuki (Blood: The Last Vampire), Ito Hideaki (Umizaru), veteran Kobayashi Kaoru, Tsuchiya Anna (Sakuran), Ohgo Suzuka (Into the Faraway Sky), Hong Kong star Ekin Cheng (The Storm Warriors), and Yamazaki Tsutomu as the narrator.

Low-ranking ninja Kamui (Matsuyama Kenichi) seeks the freedom to live life as he wishes, but he is bound by the rules of feudal Japan and his clan. He who is born a ninja, dies a ninja. Constantly on the run from other ninjas out for his life, Kamui trusts and cares for no one until fate brings him to a fishing village where he meets fisherman Hanbei (Kobayashi Kaoru) and his family.

Keep it simple Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
As a young boy, the title character of "Kamui" is trapped in a life in which he is relentlessly bullied and mistreated. Kamui (Matsuyama Kenichi) seeks freedom and escape from this living hell through becoming a powerful ninja, able to ward off any assaults. He discovers, however, that being a ninja does not bring freedom, but instead enshackles him to the demands of the Iga ninja clan. Hoping to gain that illusive freedom, Kamui flees the ninja only to find that he now lives life as a kind of hunted animal, always on the run from the tentacles of his clan. Finally, he washes up on the shore of an isolated island, where he bonds with a the residents of a small fishing village and, through that bond, begins to learn that true freedom comes not through escape, but instead within community. But can Kamui ever truly leave his past behind?

This rich and compelling story plays out mostly within the film's engrossing first half. Much of the film's second half is devoted to epic battles in which Kamui's history comes back to haunt him. Matsuyama Kenichi glowers effectively throughout the film and lights up the screen on the very few occasions in which he cracks a smile. Kobayashi Kaoru as a fisherman who first tries to kill Kamui, then nurses him back to life, gives a fine performance, as does Koyuki as another renegade ninja seeking peace in the fishing village.

The film both soars and crashes on its extensive use of CGI special effects. The CGI does a spectacular job of depicting the unique skills of the ninja, making them look like black-clad Spidermen as they leap from tree to tree. It is jarringly inauthentic at producing leaping deer and jumping sharks. It yields an amazing scene of a small boat tossed about in a stormy sea, but looks quite fake when showing a huge pirate galleon navigating those same waters. Ultimately, the temptation to "go big", to create a spectacle through CGI, reduces the impact of "Kamui". When the film concentrates on the simple story of Kamui's search for freedom, it is very good. Recommended.
