Film Review on 13 Assassins

This film is a great description of the feudal society in Japan and how the loyalty of the Samurai to their Lords must be obeyed. It is extremely hard to watch in the beginning because of the violence, but necessary to the plot line. It has a great story and is very interesting to watch. I would recommend this movie to teachers trying to understand society in Japan during this Feudal time period, but not to use as a teaching tool.

For use in the classroom:
There is absolutely no way a teacher can show the whole film in his or her classroom. There is too much violence for this to be appropriate. There are a few scenes that could be useful, such as the training of the samurai to go to battle against the evil heir to the Shogun, but overall no.
