"Okay, why does Amazon, place a non-ANIME film into the ANIME section??? Although this film(s) collection is sort of good, with a somewhat good story. But is it on the level of the Lone Wolf and Cub level Series NO WAY CLOSE.
It reminds me of a made-for-tv-movie, which it probabely was by Japanese standards. One scene has a woman raped, which make the rating R, due to person being raped exposing her breasts. NOT FOR KIDS....
The sword play is nice, not allot of blood, not like on the level of other Japanese films.
Anyways, if you are thinking of buying it as ANIME like Basilisk is.. This isn't that at all. SOOOOO DON'T BUY IT."

"Made the unfortunate mistake of buying this under the impression it had something to do with Basilisk or Shinobi: Heart Under Blade. Wrong and wrong again. This is hand cam ninja soap opera. Interesting, but ultimately not too good and definately NOT what I was hoping it would be."

"I had bought this on the notion that this took place before the Shinobi: Heart Under Blade movie, and boy was I sadly mistaken. I had spent $30.00 on a movie series that I expected to at least hold my interest, and have some decent action sequences in. What I saw was a somewhat interesting plot line, with characters dressed up in modern day clothing, and actors that gave a direct performace. When I seen the Three Stooges of Japanese action movies, I could no longer handle it. I'm sorry but I've actually seen better acting and action sequences in a Power Rangers televison episode. I didn't expect a Kill Bill blood scene, but I did expect that type of action. I will say that the actress that portrayed Aoi was a very pretty actress that I would like to see in other movies, and both main actors who portrayed, Aoi and Kageru, were the only ones who I think will ever show up in other movies in the future because of their acting abilities. I'm sorry for those who are fans, but this should never have been released."
Waste of money!

"For an epic ninja film series, you'd think there would be more than one film location; the woods. That's right, all 4 of the films take place in the woods almost 95% of the time. As if it weren't boring enough with crappy action sequences and lame story. Don't waste your money. I agree that Aoi and Kageru were good in the film, but I wish I had seen them first in something else. And the film did look like it was filmed by a soccer mom with a camcorder. The overall quality is just bad. Low budget or not, a lot more could have been done to make this a decent set of movies."
