Outstanding computer game intro movie for Capcom’s forthcoming Onimusha 3: Demon Siege.
“Onimusha 3 Demon Siege furtherboosts its CG movie production quality to motion picture standards by enlisting the talents of acclaimed movie director Takashi Yamazaki, and Donnie Yen whose recent work can be seen in such movies as Blade 2, Shanghai Nights, the Oscar nominated film Hero and is currently the action supervisor for several popular Japanese films. The dramatic six minute opening cinematic is epic in scope.”
