"A CLASSIC SAMURAI FILM"
"Takashi Miike is in TOP, SLASHTASTIC FORM"
"13 ASSASSINS IS PURE PLEASURE. It culminates in a magnificent 45-minute showdown that has to be the best final battle sequence in cinema since, oh Kill Bill at least."
"IT DELIVERS SUCH INTENSITY THAT IT’S HARD TO BREATH, THAT IT’S DIFFICULT NOT TO STAND UP AND CHEER. There are few samurai films (classic or modern) that are as satisfying as this one."
"THE FILMS IS A RELENTLESS LOCOMOTIVE. Enthralling and entertaining."
