New To Blu: 13 Assassins

Takashi Miike's samurai masterpiece 13 Assassins finally finds it's way to the Blu Ray format this week. Unfortunately this film bypassed the U.S. box office only showing in a few theaters on an extremely short run.

Not only is 13 Assassins  one of the best  movies I've seen in the past year, it is one of the bloodiest. The film features one of the longest running battle scenes I've ever seen. Lucky for us, it's all done with swords and hand held weapons. If you are a fan of samurai films or action in general, you will definitely enjoy the epic 13 Assassins.
