    "As an avid fan of the game I must say the team researched the expressions and deliveries well. The director brought the game to life with his directing skills as he almost mimicked the game yet but a certain personal touch into it. "

    "This punk representation of Japan's youth was done quite well. The director and his team sure did a proper research on how gangs and such use their language, tone and pronunciation of their lines, Kudos!"

    "This movie really showed the audience the vile oppression most of the Japanese people felt during the warring eras. They have re-constructed the ambiance, situation and despair that was felt during those sad times."

    "This movie showcased what an assassin should be, the use of language, ton intonations as well as the aura that the actor emits really suggests that the research team really did their jobs as well as the directors for the scenes were simply spectacular. <3"

    "Top notch historical movie in my taste. They researched well into what the samurai's really do when they are disgraced as well as the proper use of the old tongue for the Japanese people because they simply do not talk the way in the movie."

    "This movie made me more wary of the people around me, simply because they made me aware of the dangers of a lurking psycho/sociopath could do in our society. They can easily blend and that really sent chiils down my spine! Great movie, wonderful atmosphere as well as effects."

    "Although takashi didn't really direct this entirely his presence could still be felt and seen within the confines of the movie. This simply dictates that his presence and opinion as a director is highly valued."
