...the film offers far more than cheap thrills and violent spectacle. 13 Assassins brings men to the crux of their beliefs and forces them to live out the reality of their choices in battle.

Takashi Miike has created a reverential and vital film in a genre that many may have thought as moribund and passé as its subject.
