Bunraku cost an awful lot of money and starred a whole lot of interesting people for it to be so ignored. It has a 19% from critics on Rotten Tomatoes, but a 6.2 on IMDb from people who actually like movies. That sort of split is indicative of one thing: this is not a pretentious, artsy-fartsy, deeply meaningful film. Instead, this is a stylish, slick action thriller that has some incredibly inventive action sequences and badass characters. Bunraku is a pulpy noir tale of revenge featuring Josh Hartnett, Woody Harrelson, Ron Perlman, and Demi Moore. The "side-scrolling beat 'em up" action scene, in particular, is one of my favorites. I highly recommend this film for fans of Sin City, A Better Tomorrow, Kill Bill, Suckerpunch and other extravagant action flicks.
