Directed by Keishi Ohtomo, Rurouni Kenshin is a live-action adaptation of the well-regarded manga written by Nobuhiro Watsuki and stars Takeru Satô as the titular character alongside Emi Takei, Yû Aoi, Teruyuki Kagawa, Yôsuke Eguchi, Munetaka Aoki and Kôji Kikkawa.
Ex-assassin Kenshin Himura (Takeru Satô) has made a vow never to kill again. Now a wandering samurai, Kenshin protects those in hope of reparation. Finding a home at a failing dojo run by Miss Kaoru (Emi Takei), he becomes entangled in a string of murders related to a drug ring run by the ruthless Kanryuu (Teruyuki Kagawa).
Rurouni Kenshin follows the story of a man avoiding violence – but will his vow be put to the test when those he loves are threatened by his troubled past?
Rurouni Kenshin is released in UK cinemas on October 4th.
