    "I think that this is a decent movie however the special effects are of poor quality. I found it hard to enjoy because the sword fighting scenes were poorly rendered and obviously fake. If you can get past that you might enjoy it. "

    "While Kikujiro is a strong film in its own right, it has some strong competition when it comes to being the best Tatkeshi Kitano film. It explores territory which at times depart from his standard way of storytelling and show a different side of him artistically. "

    "Outrage is one of my all-time favorite Takeshi Kitano movies. For drama and incredible acting, this is the film for you. The cinematography and score are also compelling and keep pulling you in. This is a film that transcends national boundaries and is global in scope and appeal. Next time you are looking for something to watch, I recommend Outrage."

    "Ghost in the Shell starts with a bang and never stops. Even at the moments where it tries to give you a key to the plot with some dialogue, it's short lived before the ever increasing action continually interrupts and keeps you engaged as well as feeling the adrenaline before you at every turn. I never thought I'd say that this was something you should watch, and I definitely never thought I'd dare say it was great. But it is what it is."
