The movie was good with great action sequences which tries and successfully mimics the sword fight of the anime. The casting of Kenshin and Kaoru was spot on. For the storyline, I think they mashed-up at least three arcs of the series which is somehow confusing for a fan like me. The final antagonist which is Jin-e is a good final match because I liked it in the anime version. However, should they make a sequel to this movie, more prominent antagonists should be featured.
All together, this is a good movie for fans and first timers alike.
