I am beyond surprised that Capcom actually gave Onimusha to a team that cares about the source material that they are adapting. This, in my opinion, is an amazing adaptation with superbly choreographed fight scenes and plenty of likable character moments.

The only shred of hope I had for this adaptation came from the fact that Takashi Miike was at the helm of the production as director and he is most likely the reason why action scenes look as amazing as they do.

I wish I could rate the first and second halves separately.

What begins as a fantastic and enthralling ride with a diverse cast of characters set in a beautiful historic setting ends with a nonstop rollercoaster, and not the good kind. Abrupt, nonstop, splash introductions of characters, places, and powers that had no relevance at all until this very moment are suddenly slammed right into your face for the sake of hastily pulling together surprise twists or over-the-top battles. One second, it's a samurai drama, and the next, it's Sephiroth vs Goku: cheesy one-liner edition.

I'd like to joke that the first half was written by someone ...
