Lucky 13

13 Assassins, the 2010 period film directed by Takashi Miike is a remake of a 1963 film with the same title. Still, Miike's film has been unfairly compared to Akira Kurosowa's 1954 epic Seven Samurai. Yes, there are similarities, but really, could any Japanese filmmaker escape Kurosawa's influence? Like The Dirty Dozen, it is an homage and without doubt, a classic.

To die a noble death...
