Movie Reviews

Great Drama
asugar2 | Seattle USA | 04/16/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Acupuncturist, Dr. Baian considers himself an asset to his community with a very Dark secret. He returns & is still an Assassin, but he only takes money for killing evil, fiendish, people that deserve to die based on his own moral judgement using an extra large accupunture needle to the back of the neck of his victims while they are sleeping which leaves no trace. Set again during the Japanese Edo period, scenes takes place mainly in sleazy bars & brothels, capturing a sense of the Japanese underworld of that time.
A little slow with not much action so If ya want lotsa action I recommend Demon Spies, Shadow Hunters or Lone Wolf with Cub.
