Azumi (2003) In war-torn Shogunate Japan, Azumi (Aya Ueto) is a beautiful young girl who has been trained from childhood with nine other orphans to become a fearless assassin. Martial arts master Gessai (Yoshio Harada) has raised the ten children in complete seclusion in the hope that his protégés will one day defeat the merciless warlords and restore peace to the land. To test that they are the ruthless killers they will need to be for the mission, Gessai orders them to pair off and fight to the death. Burdened with the cruel mission to kill friends and enemies alike, and sacrifice innocent lives Azumi begins to question her fate but Gessai leaves them neither room nor time for self-doubt as his trap ensnares them. Azumi and her remaining friends forge ahead, unaware of the terrible bloodshed that awaits them...

'Azumi' is a frantic CG-assisted Japanese 'Jidai Geki' (period drama) from cult director Ryuhei Kitamura starring Jpop siren Aya Ueto as teenage assassin Azumi leading a band of 5 warriors on a mission to restore peace to the land.

Serialised since 1994, the manga 'Azumi' from Yu Koyama has developed an avid following, at once shocking and seizing readers with its audacious scale and extreme depictions of violence and cruelty, selling over 8.5 million copies!

Azumi 2: Death Or Love (2005) Picking up shortly after the events in the first film, Jpop sensation Aya Ueto continues her foray into the cinema fold in reprising her role as Azumi, the young ninja assassin charged with the burden of preventing her nation falling into civil war. However, rival Masayuki Sanada (Mikijiro Hira) is the government official determined to upset the delicate balance of national unity and steer Japan away from its destined course...

Set around the beginning of the Tokugawa Shogunate period of Japanese history (1603 - 1867), 'Azumi' is based on the Manga by Yu Koyama. Accompanying leading light Aya Ueto, 'Battle Royale' favourites Ai Maeda and Chiaki Kiriyama star in the hack n' slash martial arts mayhem!

These two movies are awesome. If you're big on Asian films with plenty of action and violence and bloody swordplay and over the top stunts and at the same time an awesome story, then you will certainly like AZUMI. Also on the plus side she is gorgeous so it's hard not to like her. well worth the money a must own classic set of unique films.

Best martial arts movies I now have in my collection, stunning Aya Ueto delivers an incredible performance and all inspiring fight scenes which'll keep you on the edge of your seat in enjoyment. A must have for any true fan of Japanese cinema!

These are quite brilliantly lunatic little films, though the second does let the side down by losing pace and style from the first. Azumi has the best mental bad guy ever, and Azumi 2 the most brilliant villain's armour. Very silly, very fun, very cheap to buy. Result!

 Good clean cut fun

Azumi 1 can be seen alone, but Azume 2 will complete the story. I was blown away by the first one, with great action and lots of chop suey. Remeber this hero is based on a comic, so wearing a miniskirt is probably not historical correct, but Azumi looks great, so guys will prefer this. Movie 2 feels a bit too long, but afterwards it is satisfying to have seen it all and ends are tied up.

 I thought 1 & 2 were fantastic.
