    One word: Amazing!

    I can't seem to get enough of Yamada; at first, I didn't think much when I saw him around but as I saw the diversity of roles he portrays, I realized that this guy is a real actor not some flower boy playing around. He also has such an absorbing charisma that makes you want to watch more of his productions.

    I watch many old classics samurai movies and toshiro mifune and tatsuya nakadai was the 2 gods of japanese cinema back then. Years and years have past I was looking for a modern japanese actor that can atleast match 1/2 of what mifune and nakadai gives, I find tadanobou asano and odagiri joe but I was looking a younger one so that I can follow his career. BUT its difficult since japanese cinema now is conquered by fangirl actors produced by this sh!t old guy johnny kitagawa( this guy destroyed japanese cinema IMO).

    Lucky that japan cinema is not dead since I find this actor who I think will be the next nakadai or mifune (I HOPE). After seeing 13 assassins and byakuyakou i believe he has a chance to get that intensity what toshiro mifune gives, and his acting range is somewhat same with nakadai with his movies densha otoko, crowzero, epic show yuusha yoshihiko, sekai no chusin(ironically yamada best role to date "matsumoto sakutaro" is the grandson of "Matsumoto Kentaro" PLAYED by nakadai) and recently milocrorze where he played 3 different roles.
    He's also chosen by newyork festival as young rising star of 2011 and hollywood reporters top 10 young actor to look out for. His fanbase abroad is bigger than more famous actor in japan becuase of his films with takeshi miike and for his character Serizawa.

    I have a feeling that he will go in the same path like actors toshiro mifune and tatsuya nakadai.
