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!

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 and unique film. Be sure to get AZUMI 2 as well it's equally as brilliant.

 ACE!!!

another brilliant transfer from comic to screen. a young female assassin causing mayhem with a sword. what more can you want.
excellent story and acting incorporating great action sequences, culminating in a blood soaked finale.
puts princess blade in the shade!!

 Rather well done Chambara

An interesting take on Japanese history, it holds no allusions to being historically acurate, just very entertaining.
The fight sequences are enjoyable, and typically a picture says a thousand words in that the best scenes are unspoken. Not that the dialogue is bad, it holds up well, and the subtitles are a reasonably accurate translation for those who don't speak Japanese. Well worth a watch and Azumi 2 wraps the story up nicely. I would recommend this.

 Sexy cast, Sexy acting, chicks with swords.
