13 Assassins

13 Assassins (Takashi Miike, 2010)

A group of assassins come together for a suicide mission to kill an evil lord.

Some movies get off to such bad ( = unpleasant) beginnings that I decide not to continue watching. 13 Assassins (Takashi Miike, 2010) begins with a seppuku. You don’t see the knife cutting, but you see the actor’s face in closeup – and hear the SFX! That was enough for me.
