Overview
With Godzilla veteran Shusuke Kaneko taking the reins from Ryuhei Kitamura. Azumi 2 more than meets the expectations of legions of action aficionados in an impressive and entertaining follow up to the Yu Koyama manga favourite, Azumi.

Azumi 2 carries on where the original left off. with expert assassin Azumi (Aya Ueto) and her remaining surviving colleague Nagara (Yuma Ishigaki – Battle Royale II), still following their quest to rid Tokugawa Japan of its warlords and so bring peace to the country. The duo meet up with Lord Tenkai-sama, who recruits them to take out another trouble-rousing government official, the vengeful Masayuki Sanada. In order to protect himself. Sanada recruits a crack team of high tech assassins that Azumi must face in turn before taking on Sanada in a bruising final showdown.

Boasting extravagant set pieces, sublime choreography and villains whose powers verge on the superhero, the key to Azumii 2 is still the towering performance of Aya Ueto, the ultimate female action hero.
