Death of a Samurai is a beautiful tale which takes its time to develop before exploding in a wonderful action sequence. This is a very different approach to the samurai tale, one that is much less action focused than other films but those unfamiliar with the story are in for a treat with Miike's quiet and assured tale while fans of Kobayashi's, myself included, may find themselves underwhelmed with Miike's effective but largely uninspired take on an already familiar story.
