Synopsis

Cult director Ryuhei Kitamura directs this computer-graphic enhanced big-screen adaptation of Yu Koyama's samurai manga. Aya Ueto stars as Azumi, a beautiful young femme fatale who, along with nine other orphans, has been trained as an assassin by martial arts master Gessai (Yoshio Harada). To test the fearlessness of his trainees, Gessai orders them to pair off and fight until death - a mission that provokes Azumi to start questioning her role. But, caught in Gessai's lethal trap, and under orders to kill the evil warlords that are tearing the country apart, she must forge ahead despite the immorality and bloodshed.
