it's beautiful to look at. and that's about it.
the story is so terribly put together. the pacing was strange. the main character doesn't really change all that much, and by the end he has nothing to lose which makes the resolution not very satisfying. the side characters were not fun or funny. the style of the humor seemed so out of place amongst the serious subject matter. why would a legendary samurai be so absurdly silly? no one laughed at any of his lines at all in my theater.
overall i was just very bored. probably would not watch again.
