Rurouni Kenshin The Legend Ends
Sunday 30 January, 10:40
Never shall time be turned back! An action marvel shattering the grudge of the past.
Through the filming of Part 2 and 3, which were productions that will go down in Japanese film history, the finesse of the staff and cast members is polished up to the extreme. The scene where Kenshin jumps onto Shishio's warship is a pinnacle of action filmmaking that will blow away even those unfamiliar with the genre. The super-close-range, high speed fighting is presented to us with an intensity that only the Kenshin team could deliver. After his painful defeat in the previous installment, Kenshin pursues the way of the sword again. His will becomes the driving force behind the action sequence that propels history - and the story of the saga - forward. Jump into battle with Kenshin!
