it was good. not the best. what i love about this movie, that it got the complete package. there's the science fiction, the action (all the weapons are really cool especially the samurai that the yakuza held), the humor, and Adrian Brody. haha! he is sooo.. handsome eventhough he looked older than usual. well, times goes by, but he still handsome for me. i heard there will be another movie with the same title, played by Hugh Jackman. a little bit boring to hear, but since it'll be played by him, i think it's worth the wait.
