Default kenshin

i watched the other day and it is an okay movie, it wont make it to the top of my personal fav charts but it is well rounded and even though i did not like the lead actor (h elooked more like a boy band member) I slowly warmed up to him.
Wha annoyed me most was the main villain, he is as one-dimensional as it can get, laughing hysterically and maniacally, that just made me cringe.
I did really enjoy the reversed blade action, the brawler (in my eyes the funniest part and should have gotten more screen time), and the subtle love story that was painful to watch like so many other movies.
i also relished the score and the incorporation of jutsus.

all in all i give it two thumbs up, but needing to stress that with a few adjustments this could have been off-the-chart.
