Takashi Miike’s 13 Assassins took a bow at last year’s London Film Festival and you can see what our Craig Skinner thought of it here. It is available On Demand now and will run in theatres in the US from the end of April and in UK cinemas about a week after that. Having wowed and appalled us in equal measure with his impactful and horrifying one-two of Audition and Ichi the Killer, Miike is now trying his hand at Samurai films and if Craig’s review and the trailer below are anything to go by, he is meeting with considerable success.

There is an incredible sense of urgency to the fight and action scenes on display here, an immersion in the battles that is engaging and invigorating. Although the trailer understandably holds back on the viscera, it is not hard to see that this is going to be a violently compelling piece. Savour the poster and trailer below, click through to Craig’s review above and then let us know whether this one has you interested.

Dave has been writing for HeyUGuys since mid-2010 and has found them to be the most intelligent, friendly, erudite and insightful bunch of film fans you could hope to work with. He's gone from ham-fisted attempts at writing the news to interviewing Lawrence Bender, Renny Harlin and Julian Glover, to writing articles about things he loves that people have actually read. He has fairly broad tastes as far as films are concerned, though given the choice he's likely to go for Con Air over Battleship Potemkin most days. He's pretty sure that 2001: A Space Odyssey is the most overrated mess in cinematic history.
