I have a feeling that people would have disliked Miike's movie more if they had been able to see Kudo's original first. But who knows? To my mind, 13 Assassins is the beginning of Miike's current cold streak (though I did kinda like Ninja Kids). See my piece on why Miike's remake just doesn't cut it for PressPlay.
