There is something about Japanese comedy that makes it hilarious. That is of course after you have watched a decent amount of anime, live actions and movies. I think the main reason is that actors end up playing their roles like they were animated cartoons. And the most amazing thing is that they succeed! Mission Impossible: Samurai is a movie that mixes comedy, action and historical sceneries.
