What the community says about Rurouni Kenshin: Origins
There are no comments yet!
- "This japanese film is an adaptation of a Manga which explains some of the plot eccentricities and surreal feeling of the piece. The story is well told, but everything just seems a little bit larger than life and contrived. However the acting is good and the subtitles are well translated into English"
- "I was working 8am to 7pm shifts for the past few years and I wanted to make sure I spend time in the evening with my 18 year old twin sons. I was looking for an exciting and thrilling movie to share with them while they resting at night. I found this amazing Japanese movie called "Rurouni Kenshin: Origins" which is an amazing story filled with history, tests of loyalty, and thrilling subplots written by Nobuhiro Watsuki who describes the griping account of a relentless killer serving the imperial dynasty during the reign of the Shogunate in Japan. This was a manga series was turned into an award winning movie. My sons absolutely love this cinematic and dramatic tale. Thank you!"
- "I loved the manga. I loved the anime adaptation. Is it surprising that I love this film as well? The film tells a pretty accurate depiction of that era. The samurai fight-scenes are topnotch. Great, great movie. Takeru Satoh also did a good job of portraying Kenshin Himura."
- "In Rurouni Kenshin - Part I: Origins, the hero is an ex-assassin in Meiji-era Japan, facing a new set of modern challenges as someone is going around Tokyo killing police officers. I love the historical setting of this movie, and the sensitive adaptation of the original manga. Rurouni Kenshin - Part I: Origins is one of the best manga adaptations I've seen; it makes me eager to see the following movies in the series!""A classical in the Japanese Manga movie genre with plenty of kung fu fighting in a movie that manages to escape inducing the disappointment that many Manga adaptations engender in in its most ardent fans. Though action-packed as ordered, the plot developments are rich enough to sustain interest.""A decent adaptation of the original manga, without much of the original source material cut out. You should definitely watch the original Japanese audio track with English subtitles though, if at all possible. The English voice actors are very lackluster, as is standard with earlier Anime."
- "I first became involved with Samurai movies when I watched Last Samurai where Tom Cruise played leading role. It was in that movie that I became acquainted with the discipline and lifestyle the samurais chose for themselves. Especially, the great emphasis that they put with regard to "Honor" galvanized some sense of respect toward them. As a result, i became very interested in following and watching samurai related movies. And, when doing online search, i stumbled with Rurouni Kenshin: Origins. After reading reviews and viewing the ratings, i found the movie appealing and decided to watch. I must say that it confirms all of my expectations of the world of samurais and their lifestyle. The events depicted are very dramatic and captivating to watch. "

in What are the best anime"If you have never seen any Kenshin, or are not a big Anime fan this won't be for you. Not a big anime fan and have never seen Kenshin but my boyfriend explained a bit so i really enjoyed the film. It had wonderful scenery and you can watch with subtitles. "
