Azumi

From madman director Ryuhei Kitamura (Versus) comes this over-the-top-and-back-again action flick based on the popular manga of the same name. Japanese pop star Aya Ueto stars as a young girl recruited into a secret society of assassins. Trained since childhood, our titular gal must embark on an impossible mission to unseat the current shogun and prevent a civil war from engulfing the country. Kitamura sticks, more or less, to the traditional historical samurai film formula, but pumps it full of head-cleaving action and impossible stuntwork. 128 minutes
