Well, it bothers him in that he was seeing the real consequences of his actions. Up to that point, his belief was the ends justified the means, but seeing that ruined that illusion.

Of course it's more complicated than that, but to fully tell that story would need a completely new movie.

I enjoyed watching this movie. Some scenes were kind of meh and boring for my taste but I think the best parts were the first and last parts.
It comes in second place for me while the first movie is first.

The scenery was beautiful to look at especially when he's with his sensei.

IIRC in the first movie Kenshin does mention where he got the second scar but I think it was just him saying it, there wasn't a flashback.

Dragonfan wrote:For me this movie was such a dissapointment, even more if I compare with the previous one that is great. The plot changes make no sense (what is that fake execution? What the heck are you doing with Okina "now I'm dead now alive now dead seriously"), the supporting character are ridiculous, the thing they did with the Juppongatana was something to forget, and the final battle... Oh man. The fights have been great in this movie until this point, what happened here? It looks like people moving their fake sticks around without no choreography whatsoever. Takeru even hit Yusuke with his sword, more than once actually. And Shishio had thousand of opportunities to kill Sanosuke "they didn't teach me Futae no kiwami so I am technically a simple thug fighting against one of the best swordmen ever" Sagara, but he throws him off over and over again to the point that I was starting to doubt if Shishio was the one who doesn't want to kill instead of Kenshin.
I'm also disappointed about how the supporting characters were treated, especially Yahiko, I don't really like how they just made him non-existent compared to his more active role in the series.

Sano's fight scenes are really disappointing to watch. I know he's supposed to be a street thug, but I don't really remember him being a bloody punching bag. I was willing to let it go on the first movie, but they never really made him improve up until the end.

Half of the Juppongatana just magically went poof when the fights were about to begin. The second movie tried to build them up as Shishio's strongest henchmen, and I never really remember what most of them did at the last part. I was seriously waiting for Gein from the first movie to burst out from the fat guy.

No problem. We probably have time before the licensed release, but it's better to be safe than sorry.
