Wow, just wow. My rating above is not accurate because I give The Final an 11/10. I am honestly left awestruck with what I just watched. I did not know this film series could transcend the limits of cinema any higher than the standard the previous three movies had set, but I am so glad to say that they not only managed to pull it off, but they literally blew it out of the water with this one and overexceeded expectations in every aspect of the film. Rurouni Kenshin The Final is the best action movie I have ever seen in my life, and it's not even close at all.
The fights were out of this world mindblowing. Loved to see more of the side characters in action as well, they got their shine with their superb fight scenes too. Cinematography was amazing, the movie truly shines as a full fledged, well developed action drama. They nailed the drama aspect perfectly on this one, better than the first three and I love to see it. The mood and emotional weight was so heavy, this film was every bit my vibe and I loved every second of it from start to end. Somehow, someway, they even managed to improve the already amazing soundtrack of the previous three movies and I loved that they added music to more scenes. As great as the previous three movies are, The Final easily makes them look and feel like they were on training wheels, in my opinion.
Yukishiro Enishi and his gang were all so scary and menacing, I loved every bit of them. The villain writing was just so perfectly well done. Enishi and his group are exactly what I want villains to be. What else is there to say, perfectly casted and executed from top to bottom. Every actor and actress excelled in each of their own respective roles and brought a new level of depth to their character.
I am so thankful to all of the creators and actors and actresses who made this film series possible. It's been an amazing 10 years, I give a sincere thank you, truly from the bottom of my heart. The two year wait was so worth it. I am so grateful, I can't wait to see The Beginning next! Thank you, Kenshin.
