    Enraged by decades of treachery and mistrust, two magical samurai clans go to war despite the love that was meant to keep the peace in director Ten Shimoyama's feudal action entry. The year is 1614, and Japan has been unified under supreme shogun Tokugawa. Though the love shared between Gennosuke of Kohga and Oboro of Iga should have been enough to end the cycle of suffering and strife in the two warring villages, the spirit of vengeance has gained too much momentum and the people have become possessed by their own insatiable rage. Now, as a conspiracy set into motion by Tokugawa causes the violence to swell yet again, Gennosuke pushes for peace as Oboro chooses to fight. In a time when every ninja in the land has been bestowed with amazing superhuman powers, the ultimate war is about to get under way. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      Great in blu ray


      If you aren't already a fan of this film than you will be. I must say first and foremost that this is a "love" story and anyone looking for an over-the-top action film may shy away from this film, but if you enjoy great films than I suggest you give it a try anyways. If you know anything about Japanese cinema than I'll tell you that some of Japan's biggest actors/actresses are in this film and Odagiri Joe stars in the main role (which should already spark any Japanese cinema buff's interest). I've been waiting for this film to hit blu ray and it is amazing. If you enjoy these kind of films I also suggest the following : Casshern, Goemon, Last Blood (Blood:The Last Vampire in U.S.A.), Kill

      I enjoyed this film mostly because I love martial arts films and video games. People looking for a normal action film should shy away from this movie. The shiobi characters have super human martial arts powers and can really use them. The story is really lacking any depth and I was looking for more action out of the film. The fight scenes it did have were really cool. The sets they built for the movie are very good - especially the villages built on the sides of the mountain. If you want something to do for the night it is worth seeing but I wouldn't go out of my way to see this film.

      Near Perfect


      This movie is for you, especially if you're into the anime series "Basilisk" or if you just plain like action/romance movies about ninja. The cinematography is great and it has a excellent cast. I was a big fan of the beautiful Nakama Yukie (Oboro) and after watching this, I got way more than I expected. It could use a little more action from the main characters but other than that, all the action scenes were perfect. For the romance lovers, this is also a great movie for you to watch. I guess you can say that it's kind of like Romeo and Juliet except ninja-style.
