Quotes

  • "There's a big fight scene between them. It's the famous claws versus samurai swords."
  • "As a Japanese born actor, I would like to say thank you to Jim, Hugh, the crew and cast because a lot of the movie is located in Japan. Sometimes [there are] a lot of misunderstandings of our culture, but they respected our culture and researched a lot. So when I saw the movie I was so happy because this movie had a great balance, a nice mixture of East and West, and tradition and modernism. I think Japanese audiences will be happy watching it. It has very, super modern Japan with nostalgia.. like a taste of old classic Japanese movies."
