YesAsia Editorial Description

Director Kitamura Ryuhei (Versus) helms Azumi, a 2003 film adaptation of the long-running manga series from Koyama Yu. Ueto Aya (Install, TV drama Attack No. 1) stars as the title character, a deadly and uber-cute ninja assassin who embarks on a mission to take down three vicious warlords in feudal Japan. At first, she and her fellow young trainees welcome the task, but their debut as full-fledged ninja comes with a tragic test: each of them must kill their best friend! The experience helps prepare Azumi for her difficult life as an assassin, which is fraught with tough moral choices, colorful villains, and rivers of blood flowing from the villains she dispatches - who happen to number in the hundreds!

Featuring a cast of popular J-Cinema names, including Takenaka Naoto (Shall We Dance?), Narimiya Hiroki (Nana), and Odagiri Jo (Shinobi) as a psychotic swordsman, Azumi delivers plenty of the kinetic action that fans of director Kitamura Ryuhei expect. The blood-soaked highlight of the film is the climactic battle, where Azumi takes on wave after wave of foes in a mind-blowing 200-against-1 sword battle. At the center of the maelstrom, pint-sized Ueto Aya delivers a fetching performance as the conflicted, but ultimately quite deadly title character. Upon its theatrical release, Azumi became so popular that it spawned a 2005 sequel, Azumi 2: Death or Love.

Loved it, Watch it. Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
In the long list of Asian popcorn movies, those films you can sit back and just enjoy, this ranks right up there.

Granted the fights might not be as technically proficient as some of the HK movies around but everything else about this film is fantastic. A hot chick wading through hordes of evildoers wielding a Samurai sword, what more could you want.

This one surprised me! Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
I typically am not a fan of these CG-enhanced films featuring pretty pop stars as master swordsmen (or swordswomen), but I must make an exception for "Azumi". Once the film gets cranked up, it is one long high-octane adrenaline rush. The film's culminating battle scenes are a wonder to behold; the filmmakers create images and use colors in ways I've not seen before.

Moreover, the film has a good story to tell. Superficially, the story is about a rojin who seeks to end Japan's unceasing civil wars by grooming a team of young killers to assassinate warmongering warlords. However, the film's real story is about how Azumi (Ueto Aya), the most skilled of the young killers, comes to terms with her mission. On this level, the film works wonderfully well.

I was not thrilled with how the film ends; it is nothing more than a bald attempt to set up a sequel. This quibble does not deter me from recommending this film very highly. It is a sword-slashing, blood-spurting, action-packed blast!

Potential that fizzles out Customer Review Rated Bad 4 - 4 out of 10
Have the Japanese version of this. It views like your manga-action movie with typical characters but I will always prefer an old school samurai (chambara) movie over this modern-ish "ninja" display. After the initial gut wrenching 'kill your childhood friend' test occurs, the audience suffers a loss of attachment with the characters regardless of the attempts in story & interpersonal complications the movie tries to throw at you.

Pretty Good Customer Review Rated Bad 9 - 9 out of 10
I bought this movie, because it looked and sounded good. I had my doubts however, I've been disappointed by movies that only looked good before, but I was not regretful upon watching Azumi. The story line is a little simple, which isn't a bad thing, because the storytelling is good. The sequence of events moves at a pace that doesn't lose interest. The highlights of the movie is definitely the action and sword fighting. The drawback about many Korean DVDs is that the special features are never subtitled in English, which defeats one of the purposes of buying a DVD. However the price on Azumi now is much cheaper then before. So, for anyone that enjoys ancient Asian fighting movies, this is a film worth seeing.
