Beware the Spider Tea Kettle!
grannanima | Australia | 04/24/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"When my friends and I found this old, beat up VHS tape with no jacket and the words "Ninja Wars" written on the label at our local video store for $4 it was too hard to resist.What then followed is pure ninja gold. It's very similar to Shogun Assassin in that although this movie may once have been half credible in it's original Japanese language version the English dub is completely ludicrous.From narators preaching the virtues and powers of the Spider Tea Kettle to the machinations of the mysterious Kashin Koji this movie has it all. Violence! Gore! Beheadings! Naked Women! Ninjas!Uncover the secrets of the Diamond Hand Technique! Learn how to make magic potions using the tears of an abused woman! Discover to how to speak weird orange bile into the face of your enemies!B-Grade re-dubbed ninja action at it's best!Don't delay folks flash that cash.Hit the purchase button.Order your copy of Ninja Wars today!"
80's Ninja timebomb.

"I watched this film as a child and it has stayed with me always. My dad hired it from a now defunct video shop...I bought the exact same one from a junk shop in Dover. The film is dubbed (but big budget for the time). It is packed with the dark arts, aphrodisiacs procurred from fallen women, martial arts, blood, guts, spew...the whole kit. A must have for collectors of classic 80's mythological- ninja slasher
Synopsis: Samurai retainer & meglomaniac, Danjo, wants to ovethrow his lord to rule province but can only do it by making the lord's wife fall for him. Danjo enlists the aid of five screwed up devil-monks. (the one little scab with an afro is cool). Ninja hero (Jotaru) has girlfriend captured by monks who cut of her head and place it on the body of a maid. She the becomes lady hellfire. Very complexing script...but a certified must-have.
P.S For God's sake man, bring it out on DVD!"

"I like this film becuase it is one of the most crazed films I have seen with Sonny Chiba in it. Come on a fat chick on aphrodisiacs!! crazed henchmen with hilarious powers!! Some weird looking bum!! Man life couldnt be any better. But the ending is why I gave it four stars it made no sense it gave me no closure. The film is still good though, if your not a very serious person about these types of films."
Another Sonny Chiba/Henry Sanada classic

"Ninja Wars is a freakishly entertaining story about a wicked magician who exchanges the heads two beautiful young women, so that a lustful baron can have his cake and eat it too, so to speak. A spooky collective of deranged monks and demonic killers are in the employ of said magician, who use poisonous projectile vomiting, image multiplication, spells, spears and resurrection techniques to thwart the infernal meddlings of Henry Sanada, our hero. If you love films like Shogun's Ninja, Lone Wolf and Cub, Sex & Fury, Kill Bill and The Killing Machine, you won't regret buying this!"
