A decent watch, but not great.

The heiress to half of the Yakuza crime syndicate forges an uneasy alliance with an amnesiac stranger who believes an ancient sword binds their two fates. She must unleash war against the other half of the syndicate who wants her dead.

"No one is capable of burying their past." This is one of those action movies that are more form than substance. The violence and the ending were great, but I had issues with the pace and the acting. There is an interesting twist here that halped the plot make more sense, As the credits rolled, this was a pretty good watch. It made a decent filler while I waited for Shang-Chi to come out.

The worst part is the speed

The basic plot is a good one, unfortunately the speed of the movie is painfully slow. The acting is acceptable and the action scenes are not well choreographed, but if they make a sequel, which is definitely their intention, I'll watch it. Just don't expect anything great.

Fairly bland action thriller...

"Yakuza Princess" from writers Kimi Lee, Tubaldini Shelling, Fernando Toste and Vicente Amorim was somewhat of a very mixed bag of nuts. And by that I mean that some parts of the storyline were rather interesting, while others were hardly that great. But ultimately, the movie was weighed down by some rather monotonous pacing of the narrative.

Now, the storyline told in "Yakuza Princess" had some interesting enough aspects to it, but it wasn't a great movie experience from beginning to end. So it was somewhat of an ordeal to sit through the movie in its entire length and actually not starting to have one's interest in the storyline start to falter.

There were some nice action scenes and sword fighting scenes that actually made the movie bearable to sit through. But the performance of Masumi was the icing on the cake, because she was really well cast for the role of Akemi in "Yakuza Princess", and she carried the movie almost single-handedly. The movie also has a nice performance by Tsuyoshi Ihara, Eijiro Ozaki and Jonathan Rhys Meyers.

"Yakuza Princess" is certainly a watchable movie, but it was a rather tedious one at the same time. And that ultimately leads to my mediocre five out of ten star rating. There are far better movies of a similar nature out there, so "Yakuza Princess" sort of just came and went without much of any ruckus.
