What's missing is conviction, a sense that these are real people instead of actors in ornate costumes stepping gingerly through antique sets. Full Review

...ONMYOJI never really betrays its cultural lineage, borrowing from Hong Kong and Hollywood traditions only for flavor and effect...

Rating: 2/5 -- For Americans, accustomed to more polished effects and far more violent action, Onmyoji is bound to appear tame and a tiny bit precious.

A ghostly and gorgeous tale. Full Review

Rating: 3/4 -- Goofy and campy and unabashedly old-fashioned, from the silent-era acting technique to the overwrought direction. Full Review

Rating: 3.5/5 -- Should strike a strong chord among fans of Japanese period films, particularly those with a mythical, mystical bent like Ugetsu and Kwaidan. Full Review

Product Description:

This Heian period (A.D. 794-1185) epic stars Mansai Nomura as Seimei, Kyoto's court Onmyoji (a kind of fortune teller in commune with the spirits). When a young samurai named Hiromasa comes to Seimei to discuss a possible plot against the government, the two discover that the court's formidable magician, Doson, is indeed planning a coup. Teaming their skills to take on the powerful Doson, Seimei and Hiromasa face a long and difficult battle.
