It's an interesting, slightly western style, English language take on samurai movies, set in a dystopian future. It actually made me realize how similar Japanese samurai movies and westerns are, because of how nicely elements from both fit together in this.

The visuals look a lot like Sin City, but not in a cheap ripoff kinda way. They are different enough, and very pretty all around. Whoever is like me, and likes to watch movies like Kill Bill and Sin City over and over again just for the visuals, might wanna catch this in a theater. It's limited release, but there's no way it's not going to spread.

Bump. Just saw this and I fucking loved it. I can tell this is one I'll watch several times. The cast was strong, it was hokey, but in a fun, quotable way, and the action was great. Find it. See it.

Wow. Neon bumped this once, and that was that? I really thought this movie would do a lot better.

I've seen it a couple more times since my bump, and holy fuck is it a fun movie with a ton of rewatchability. Like Norm I am mystified by the lack of attention it's getting on Wackbag.

This is the first I've ever heard of this movie, but it looks pretty cool.

Well since it's on instant I'll be watching it either tonight or in the morning.

The copy I burned wound up not working for some reason. Never redownloaded it but looked at it on Bluray the other day.
