Film review: Honeymoon A film so absurd it's laughable

Recently I was looking through my local video store's martial arts, browsing the classics such as The Big Boss, Game of Death and even some samurai films like Seven Samurai and the very good and recent 13 Assassins.

I was salivating thinking about getting back and watching some anime and martial arts movies while having a drink and eating some beef jerky.

Then, I spotted The Twilight Samurai. Without the cover giving away much, it seemed odd that I had never heard of it.

So, being the Otaku/Weeboo (I don't care, I love Japan) that I am, I thought to myself, "Yay! A new samurai film". I was so eager to get home and watch it.

I stuck it strait into my PS3 and proceeded to watch it. Two hours and nine minutes later I had found my new favourite samurai film.

Now, I'm not going to say anything about the plot, but what I will say is that there aren't many fights (although I think the last fight is very well done). While some people will be put off, especially if you like very huge, epic fights, it makes up for it in story.

Please do yourself a favour and watch the movie as my words won't do the movie justice. I give it 10/10.
