|With Godzilla veteran Shusuke Kaneko taking the reins från Ryuhei Kitamura. "Azumi 2" more than meets the expectations of legions of action aficionados in an impressive and entertaining follow up to the Yu Koyama manga favourite, "Azumi"."|
Azumi 2" carries on where the original left off, with expert assassin "Azumi" (Aya Ueto) and her remaining surviving colleague Nagari (Yuma Ishigaki – "Battle Royale II"), still following their quest to rid Tokugawa Japan of its warlords and so bring peace to the country. The duo meet up with Lord Tenkai-sama, who recruits them to take out another trouble-rousing government official, the vengeful Masayuki Sanada. In order to protect himself, Sanada recruits a crack team of high tech assassins that Azumi must face in turn before taking on Sanada in a bruising final showdown.
Boasting extravagant set pieces, sublime choreography and villains whose powers verge on the superhero, the key to "Azumi 2" is still the towering performance of Aya Ueto, the ultimate female action hero.
