The final installment of this live-action in this fairly well-received adaptation, I knew that there was going to a heck lot of important events to cover, if they were to follow that of the original writing (or at least for me it’s the anime counterpart) and indeed it proved to be a tad too much in this aspect.

The story continues from where the previous movie left off, so it might be a bad idea if you happen to be a first timer when it comes to the Kenshin franchise. While many of the important plot checkpoints are preserved, the deviations made in the earlier movies will inevitably lead to further changes here. In fact, some of the iconic battles were reduced very, very greatly over here to the point that it probably lost its original purpose of having such a character and face-off battle.

But to make up for it, they tried to make the final battle more epic with lots of actions involving more people than the original. Well, I can’t say I exactly love the way it turned out, but I felt that it actually suited the way how the movie was going. Haha, but of course there are some very puzzling loopholes or illogical developments. Never mind, take it with a pinch of salt. Heh, you will know what I mean should you eventually watch this movie.

A journey has come to an end and it is probably one of the better live action adaptations in recent times. I understand some important details have been altered but that is kind of like the norm to expect from such live action productions. At least we can see that on many fronts much effort was put in to make it a better movie experience which is a very good thing. Of course there will be some things that the anime/manga be better at, but this isn’t all that bad if you are not intending to take that route. It has been a pretty enjoyable trilogy for me and I hope to see more quality live action productions in future.
