No Reason to Miss This Awesome Thing :D

Are you Japanese Live-Action Fan?

If Yes, No reason to miss this show. This is the best live-action movie I've ever watched!

The Storyline: Great The Action Scene: Excellent (You will not see the awesome samurai fight like this!) The Music or Soundtrack: More than excellent!

and with the length that more than 2 hours, you will really enjoy the show. NO REASON TO MISS, Believe ME!

If No, then It's depend on you. Japanese Movie Style may boring for someone who never watched.

However, Let's give a chance for this one.

Superior to the first

I enjoyed the first film while finding it no great shakes, a little too long-winded for its own good and very much an origin tale so awkward and clumsy at times. KYOTO INFERNO, the sequel, is much better and a real step-up, the first half of a filmic duo that offers everything you'd want from a modern samurai adventure film. The plot is similar to the first in many respects, but you don't watch action films for their stories anyway. This one's all about the visuals and they're glorious throughout, with great use of colours and particularly fire that look stunning in high definition. The action is better choreographed too and the sword fights often top tier. Tatsuya Fujiwara is one of my favourite Japanese actors and it was great to see him in a very different kind of role in this one.

Spectacular Sequel

The Chief of Police Hajime Saito (Yôsuke Eguchi) and a team of policemen hunt down the outlaw Makoto Shishio (Tatsuya Fujiwara),who was betrayed by the government after defeating the Tokugawa shogunate; however Shishio and his men slaughter the police officers and only Hajime survives. Kenshin Himura (Takeru Satô) is summoned by the government to help them to find Shishio in Kyoto. He refuses first, but when a minister is murdered, he accepts to go and leaves the dojo of Kaoru Kamiya (Emi Takei) and the boy Yahiko Myojin (Kaito Ohyagi),his friend Sanosuke Sagara (Munetaka Aoki) and Dr. Megumi Takani (Yû Aoi). Kenshin meets the thief Makimachi Misao (Tao Tsuchiya) that tries to steal his sakabato on the way to Kyoto and they stumble upon a boy that tells that his brother and his parents are in danger. They find the trio murdered by Shishio's men and Kenshin defeats them in the nearby village. A man called Sojiro Seta (Ryûnosuke Kamiki) contacts Kenshin and brings him to meet Shishio that asks Sojiro to duel Kenshin. Their sword fight stops when Kenshin's sakabato is broken and Shishio and his men go away. Meanwhile, Kaoru decides to find Kenshin in Kyoto and Yahiko and Sanosuke follow her. When Kenshin arrives at Kyoto, Misao asks whether he would like to go to a cheap inn. Kashiwazaki Nenji (Min Tanaka),who was the ninja Okina that worked for the Tokugawa shogunate, runs the place and teams up with Kenshin. He seeks out the talented blacksmith Shakku Arai to repair his sakabato and finds that he is dead. Arai's son Keiku does not help Kenshin, but when the evil Sawagejo Cho (Ryosuke Miura) kidnaps his baby, he calls Kenshin to save his son and gives him a new sakabato. Kenshin defeats the Shishio's warrior and he is arrested by the police. Soon Hajime and Kenshin learn that Shishio intends to burn Kyoto down and they prepare the defense of the town. Is Sawagejo Cho telling the truth?

"Rurôni Kenshin: Kyôto taika-hen", a.k.a. "Rurouni Kenshin: Kyoto Inferno", is a spectacular sequel of "Rurôni Kenshin: Meiji kenkaku roman tan". The story follows Kenshin and his friends from the first film and introduces a villain more evil than in the first film. The sad moment is the unknown fate of the gorgeous and sweet Kaoru Kamiya. Every viewer and fan is certainly hoping she has survived. My vote is ten.

Title (Brazil): "Samurai X 2: O Inferno de Kyoto" (Samurai X 2: The Kyoto Inferno")
