The best part of 13 Assassins - Fatigue

My favorite part of 13 Assassins is when the second wave of ronin attack. It's rare in a movie to see the protagonists become fatigued from the act of fighting. Swinging Swords is hard work. Keeping up one's form and composure after delivering lethal blow after blow, you start to feel that that sh#t in your forearms. The movie does a great job in conveying the physicality of sword fighting.

Another great swordfight is in 'Rob Roy' between Tim Roth and Liam Neeson.

Great pick, Ricky!
