Rurouni Kenshin (15)

Animation, Action Comedy

The adventures of a young wandering swordsman who stumbles upon a struggling martial arts school in Meiji era Japan.

The critical consensus

A live-action version of a manga series in which a former samurai wanders Japan, preaching pacifism by chopping up bad guys. When not fighting assassins, much of this is rather baffling.

How much you enjoy this slick, big-budget, live-action adaptation of the hit Shonen Jump manga will depend heavily on your tolerance for cartoonish J-poppery.

This is a mildly diverting slice of fantasy samurai bollocks.
