    Bad-ass Modern Ultra-violence! Great & very fresh idea which most of you would agree with me if you watched this film...it lacks many element. One of the most compelling intros I've seen this year, with humor, fast paced storytelling and very, very stylishly done, what's not to like? But after that the scenes are not that good, it lack intensity. This stylized action film can best beBad-ass Modern Ultra-violence! Great & very fresh idea which most of you would agree with me if you watched this film...it lacks many element. One of the most compelling intros I've seen this year, with humor, fast paced storytelling and very, very stylishly done, what's not to like? But after that the scenes are not that good, it lack intensity. This stylized action film can best be described as an orgy of the following films: part Sin City, part Batman (Adam West era), part Dick Tracy, part The Quick and the Dead, and part Enter the Dragon. Squirt some Cirque du Soleil in there and the resulting love child of all these films is "Bunraku". That's really all I can say. But after all those good description, Acting & Visual Effects and Editing and some intensity is lacking...
    If Q. Tarantino would be directing it for a remake this would be very amazing film to see... Overall not that good film but worthy of your penny.

    It should surprise no one that visually quirky, graphic-novelish, pulp-noir action flicks rarely come through the sausage machine intact.

    Extremely cool-looking in the manner of "Sin City,'' but clumsily staged, slackly acted and mind-numbingly dull, Israeli director Guy Moshe's English-language fantasy is set in a future when guns, and apparently coherent conversations, have been outlawed.

    Everything feels secondhand in Guy Moshe's Bunraku, a potpourri of genres that ends up a morass of clich├ęs.
