      Anton Bitel Little White Lies Lady Snowblood only half-heartedly revels in its heroine's bloody revenge, while focusing just as much on the tragedy of her circumstances and the absurdity of her vengeful fate. Sep 25, 2012 Full Review Sean Axmaker Stream on Demand ... a thoroughly cinematic experience, full of color and movement strewn across the widescreen frame and highlighted by efficiently choreographed battles. Aug 19, 2023 Full Review Josh Larsen LarsenOnFilm ...unspools images that are as evocative as the movie’s title. Rated: 3.5/4 Feb 16, 2023 Full Review Brent McKnight The Last Thing I See More than just a bloody revenge movie, though it certainly is that, a number of thematic strands and political critiques run beneath pulp surface. Rated: A- Jul 3, 2020 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews A violent cult film that maintains in its undercurrent a sly humor and a feeling that this is a special revenge film. Rated: B Oct 24, 2016 Full Review James Kendrick Q Network Film Desk a film of rich texture and beauty that combines all manner of gonzo artistry from both stage and screen Rated: 3.5/4 Jan 19, 2016 Full Review Read all reviews

      grey g For fans of Tarantino's Kill Bill, this film will delight. KB is more than just a homage to Lady Snowblood, there are elements from format to music that stitch together the two movies. Of course KB is much more. LB is runs at a cracking pace. OF course time has made some of the special effects, fight sequences and continuity a big weak by today's standards, however it's well worth the hour and a half. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 07/27/23 Full Review Gabriel M had me on the edge of my seat, I loved this moves so much it actually cured my mom's cancer. my crippled brother actually stood up from suspense and Jesus came back. 10/10 Rated 5 out of 5 stars 05/21/23 Full Review Ray B One of the best Kung Fu movies I ever saw! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/26/23 Full Review dave s If you can get past all of the praise heaped on Lady Snowblood and look at it objectively, you'll probably find that it's a real mixed bag instead of the cinematic masterpiece many have labelled it as. In a nutshell, it's a revenge flick about a young woman seeking revenge for the murder of her father and the rape of her mother. On the positive side, Meiko Kaji has a genuine screen presence as the steely-eyed killer, never flinching as she avenges the wrongs done to her parents. There are also a handful of beautifully shot scenes and, for anyone who likes their killings with an excess of blood, Lady Snowblood is graphic. On the other hand, there are numerous poorly framed shots that are just puzzling, the editing is inconsistent and often borders on amateurish, many of the outdoor scenes seem to be overexposed, much of the acting from anyone not named Meiko Kaji is embarrassing, and the story tends to plod at times. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Bloody of course. Sad backstory. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review Audience Member Lady Snowblood is awesome! If you are a fan of exploitation films, or action films in general, this movie is a must watch! The action is perfectly over the top and bloody and the story is engaging you really feel for the main character Yuki (Snowblood) and the weight that she carries. overall this movie is a ton of fun to sit through and an absolute must see for any movie lover, I give Lady Snowblood a 9/10!
