This misbegotten tale of revenge wanders around in a state of confusion until it limps, literally and figuratively, to an ending that will satisfy no one. Princess Ito, her protector Gengo, and her beloved servant Akane, together with the rest of her clan are destroyed by the vicious Uzu. 1,000 years later, in a nondescript Japanese town, the Uzu are still living, although by now barely, on the spoils, respected by all who have forgotten or never knew of their heinous beginnings. Meanwhile Ito and Gengo have been reincarnated as a meek wife and and her nasty abusive husband. The feckless Uzu scion tries to protect Ito, while the rest of the reincarnated members of Ito clan slowly, ever so slowly, gather to plot revenge, of which inexplicably, Gengo wants no part. Still with me? I suppose this set-up had possibilities, but not in the hands of the impoverished script and lumbering direction, not to mention the lugubrious cinematography and a synthesized score which may win a prize for inapposite music. Our heroine turns out to be another hapless victim - for goodness sake, it's 2017 and we might have hoped for a spark of spunk. I kept hoping for the movie to improve, to surprise, to entertain, to touch, just once, but I waited in vain. Instead, astonishingly, the movie tries to justify Gengo's behavior, with a logic that defies humanity.
