“As a big fan of the masterpiece that is the u0026quot;Tsuioku Henu0026quot; OVA (which is what this movie is based off of) I must say this movie falls a bit short compared to it. That doesnu0026#39;t make this a bad movie at all. More of an entity on itu0026#39;s own as there are quite some difference between the two.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe differences go from actual cut content, new scenes made for the movie, scenes that should be at the end put in the middle or in other locations and the pacing/the way the story getu0026#39;s told, etc. So in a way the story will be different, but yet the same.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eSome of these changes are fun and exciting, but others left me scratching my head wondering why they did it (as the movie is about the same length as the OVA).u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThat being said I didnu0026#39;t expect/want a copy of the OVA, but it does take away from some of the relationships and character building. For example: the subtle push and pull dynamic (that slowly leads up to something beautiful) Kenshin normally has with a certain individual now feels stoic and more of a necessity for the most part.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe action scenes are crisp and well choreographed, but miss the gore and are not as graphic as the OVA. Which imo shouldnu0026#39;t be your focus. Instead it should be the beautiful and gritty story.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe acting is like the other Kenshin live action movies a.k.a. Good and the occasional dramatic anime overacting fitting to the character who it is paired to.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eAll in all the movie is the lesser of the two, but that doesnu0026#39;t make it any less enjoyable. It is still worth the time you will spend watching it.”
