Numero Ichi

If you’ve never seen Japanese actor Tadanobu Asano in action, you have to check him out. He’s basically a badass: Women find his roguish features irresistible; men love him because he’s always butchering people in insane ways in his films. Asano’s built some huge cult cred for turns in flicks like Ichi the Killer, Survive Style 5+, and The Blind Swordsman: Zatoichi, but the dude’s also just a great actor. His latest venture to find its way Stateside is Mongol, a bloody actioner about the rise of the Mongolian conqueror, Genghis Khan. The historical epic (in the vein of Braveheart, Gladiator, and Troy) was filmed in Kazakhstan and nominated for the 2008 Best Foreign Language Film Oscar. Check out Mongol when it opens this week (starting June 6) at various Sunrise Cinemas locations across Broward and Palm Beach counties. Visit for tickets and showtimes.
