Cult director Takashi Miike (Ichi the Killer, Audition) delivers a bravado period action film set at the end of Japan’s feudal era. 13 Assassins is centred around a group of elite samurai secretly enlisted to bring down a sadistic lord in order to prevent him from ascending to the throne and plunging the country into a war-torn future.
