Izo: We begin in 1865, when the Shogunate is on its last legs, but still capable of punishing its enemies. One is Izo (Kazuya Nakayama), an assassin in the service of Hanpeida (Ryosuke Miki), a Tosa lord and Imperial supporter. After killing dozens of the Shogun's men, Izo is captured and crucified. Instead of being extinguished, his rage propels him through the space-time continuum to present-day Tokyo, where he finds himself one with the city's homeless. Here Izo transforms himself into a new, improved killing machine, his entire soul still enraged by his treatment in his past life. His response to the powers-that-be, whose predecessors put him to death, is the sword.

This wouldn't be a bad thing to read, but as a movie it jumps around too much and seems incoherent. Maybe if I still smoked weed this would make sense.

steeped in deep philosophical and spiritual teachings of Japan's Edo period and full of uncomfortable truths that have and still do hold great credence. a long journey of pain and what it takes to defeat the demons that plague mankind... although the special effects need some boost and some explanation is needed for those to whom these concepts are foreign 8/10

Loved it. Very well written and made. Weird and scattered, but if you can hold out till the end...well...then...congratulations.

seems to me like an art film with real meaning on life itself, mind you it does have lots of killing in it so it's a good film in my books :P

Okay. I did 1:10 minutes before I went cross-eyed like a Kami in Hell and gave up the ghost. I enjoyed the metaphor and symbolism for the first 30 mins but then it got a tad predictable and I found that I was eating my popcorn at a much swifter pace due to the frustration; I shut it down. With respect 3/5.

Man it's way to confusing I have no clue what in the hells going on I made it 47 mins into it and I was like to hell with this, it's not artistic at all i like the action but it's near impossible to follow the story 47 mins in and I see it getting no better 5/10

Too deep into the philosophical thoughts of the author/director. Morbid and morally indishtiguishable from trash and a dung pile. Very disturbing in its inception and outlook on life based on hatred and revenge. Not worthy of a rating unless you're into this type of thing.

This is perhaps one of the most if not the most confusing waste of time movies I have watched in over 30 years.
