Bunraku (2010)

IMDb plot summary: The story of a young man who has spent his life searching for revenge only to find himself up against a bigger challenge than he originally bargained for.
Directed by Guy Moshe. Starring Josh Hartnett, Gackt, Woody Harrelson, and Ron Perlman.

While I wasn't really into the fighting or the story in this movie, the visuals were fantastic. Beautiful, vivid colors, really entertaining (if a little gimmicky) transitions -- I really enjoyed large chunks of this. It reminded me a bit of Dick Tracy, visually, except obviously Dick Tracy wins out because this one is a much less interesting story and it doesn't have any musical numbers.

2.5 stars.

Flickchart: #1077 out of 2225, below Red Eye and above The Princess and the Frog.
