Movie Reviews

  • this action thriller is an entertaining yet staid retread of familiar assassin film cliches; Masumi makes a solid debut in her first leading role; while Masumi's rawness helps her characterize Akemi, there's still a lack of character depth
    3 of 5 by Monique Jones [Common Sense Media ]
  • story of a yakuza turf war survivor smuggled to Brazil has real style and a devil-may-care cheek
    3 of 5 by Mike McCahill [The Guardian ]
  • filled with gun-toting yakuza and sword-wielding warriors, the film is both overstuffed and undernourished, a grimly self-serious tale of violent destiny that's consistently drowned out by Vicente Amorim's overreaching visual style
    1 of 5 by Keith Watson [Slant Magazine ]
  • bloodshed and mysticism are mixed together, and in that heady concoction "Yakuza Princess" is often violently brilliant; What's less fun is how its mysteries are set up and resolved: with trips to see one enigmatic exposition source after another
    2 of 5 by Richard Whittaker [Austin Chronicle ]
  • as an intellectually empty piece of genre cinema, “Yakuza Princess” can't even sit alongside movies that offer similarly obtuse ideas but that gain some favor through impressive spectacle
    Review rate : D by Carlos Aguilar [IndieWire ]
  • adapted from Danilo Beyruth's graphic novel by Brazilian filmmaker Vicente Amorim, "Yakuza" delivers stylish shootouts and eye-catching swordplay but lacks the dynamic characters and story-telling panache required to lift it into the top grade
    by Richard Kuipers [Variety ]
