    A lot of well done action. a likable heroine kicking alot of male ass, a fun villian, an action-packed climax, and a lesbian under-tone; what more do you need?

    Quite good movie, besides is a low budget movie. In an american version it can´t be better.

    Sort of a messy ninja movie, not really all that good. It's fun enough to watch, but don't go looking for decent story or plot or characters... or much of anything. It tries to go too far with not enough gas.

    A little boring and extremely long for what it is, all that Azumi really has going for it are several eye-popping battle sequences, including the climax which is a totally delicious celebration of graphic violence, and some nice camera work.

    Inevitable comparisons to Quentin Tarentino's femme-centered carnage extravaganza "Kill Bill" are not unwarranted insofar as both films featurefeature an abstract, self-conscious, and decidedly post-modern approach to a moribund genre.
  3. If you're considering the scenario via Japan's ubiquitous pedo-porn tendencies, you're too educated for this exhaustive, manga-based bloodbath, which trails after these angsty teenyboppers on a scorched-fake-earth path through hundreds of growling baddies of every genre size and type.
