Azumi - UK and Japanese Region 2 Reviews

In time for Monday's Optimum Asia release of Ryuhei 'Versus' Kitamura's Azumi, Bodhi Sarkar has treated us to a detailed review of the DVD, briefly comparing it to last year's superb Japanese release. You can find the full review here.

Snippet:
Ryuhei Kitamura paints the town red with Azumi – a movie that is soaked in blood and takes full advantage of Kitamura’s enthusiasm for all things cool. The swordfights, locations and photography provide a rich, breathtaking cinematic experience that fails to deteriorate on multiple viewings. Azumi is never short of energy, which is a prime example of Kitamura’s character and the dynamism that he brings into his movies.
Last year, Bodhi also supplied us with a full review of the fore-mentioned Japanese release. You can read that review here.

Nice. Good to know to skip the International cut. Thanks for the link.

Anyone know how the recently released Korean R3 compares?

The Korean version is still the International Cut and has most of the same extras, sans the English subtitles.
