Colin Firth, is very good in each and every movie he performs in, that is why it is easy to call him a king. I first saw him in the TV show “Pride and Prejudice” in which he performed by favorite hero from the book -Mr. Darcy. In this movie he did pretty good as well. Nicole Kidman is simply amazing me with her breathtaking beauty, as no matter how many years pass, she still looks like she is thirty years old. Skarsgard, could have done much better i guess. And my favorite Sanada, was as usually most powerful due to his eyes. Beside people that i described earlier all the rest of the actors looked like a bunch of crazy people running around. In general i can say that it is a interesting movie about the limits of humanity in a human being, and about the things done to a person by desire to revenge. Of course no matter how much you run from the past, eventually it will get you one day, and it might even steal your future from you. This movie made me worry for the main heroes a lot. But in general i can say that it is nothing special about it.

It is a very sharp subject line, discussion of very serious and important matters, which are common for every person, the great captivity in the movie, as well as huge variety of actors who were nominated for Oscar award. Sometimes the subject is a bit stretched (in my opinion), i am sure some of the scenes could have been much shorter, and that would have been more interesting. For me it was pretty obvious the fact that the film director of this movie has done a huge variety of TV shows, because this movie looked like a TV show, everything was too slowly during it, and than at the end all the interesting stuff happened in less than twenty minutes, which i think is not that great at all. Most of all i enjoyed that part of the movie that was not very social. I can definitely say that it is hard to call this movie a action movie. And most of all it should be thankful to the actors, otherwise it could have be the disaster of the year. I do not recommend wasting time on this movie guys, there are much more of better options to choose from.

I saw a great variety of movies with this name, so i am wondering is it that hard making up some original name for the movie, or that is too much to ask for?! This movie actually retells a very serious story about not funny at all revenge, that was given not simply cold, but freezing! It is a movie that makes you suffer as there is too much drama in it! There are a lot of familiar faces of actors, i surely saw them in other movies.
I think every person who enjoys watching movies knows the bridge that is shown in the movie not once, it is above the Quai river. There was a movie about it a long time ago that won seven Oscar awards and a variety of other awards. And many years after the action scenes are being filmed on it again! And once again it is a tough to watch movie, that makes it very hard on your nerves!
Ex British soldier who went through all the terrible things of Japanese captivity, torturing and humiliating after many years is trying to get back to normal, but still tries to revenge the Asian offender. I think it is a very hard to watch movie i do not advise it!
