I really enjoyed this movie, as it had me feeling a whole range of emotions. The artistic style was amazing, striking a great balance between exaggerated, but not distracting. I loved watching the main character grow, from someone who kills for the sake of killing, to someone who kills to protect that which is most precious to him. The circus characters at first were annoying, but as things progressed, I started to really like their contributions, and was genuinely sad when things didn't go their way. A bit gratuitous with the violence, but much better than something like Kill Bill. All in all, I greatly enjoyed this movie.
