Then don’t miss out the thrills and spills from this one.
It faithfully follows creative contents taken from the ever popular manga RUROUNI KENSHIN which also goes by the western name of SAMURAI X.
It is aptly directed by Keishi Otomo.
AGAINST ALL ODDS
The anti-hero Kenshin is again at odds with his inner self, that is, to keep his killings clean.
Can there be such a ruse?
Despite finding emotional solace alongside his new found friends Kaoru, Sanosuke (Munetaka Aoki) Megumi (Yu Aoi) and Myojin (Kaito Ōyagi), Kenshin is once again asked to take up his sword when the renegade assassin Makoto Shishio (Tatsuya Fujiwara) is found to be furiously destroying clans by gathering an army to topple the present Government, and to vanquish those who choose to defy him.
The finale highlight of “Rurouni Kenshin: Kyoto Inferno / The Legend Ends” would be when Kenshin Himura (Takeru Satoh) faces the burnt and bandaged antagonist Makoto Shishio (Tatsuya Fujiwara) in a duel to the death.
Now, what becomes of his bloodless vow?
Honor and duty are common traits in the samurai genre, and they shine brightest when these elements are confronted, in conflict with one’s personal principles.
With Kenshin, it is against his will to kill as it has been his desire to protect the innocent, even though Shishio still continues with his mad killing rampage uncontested.
Therefore, Kenshin’s ability to defeat the villain comes into question because of his set of principles.
You have to visit the cinema for the answers.
” RUROUNI KENSHIN : KYOTO INFERNO” the has a mesmerizing combination of exciting story-telling and historical narrative.
And it is refreshing to see Tatsuya Fujiwara (from the 2006 Death Note fame) playing the bad guy on a demented killing spree, this time around.
