"Not you average movie, unless you have seen all of chibas samurai movies. I found it very enjoyable. I don't have this version, but I did get 9 movies for $6, so for the price, this movie rates more like a 5/5, but just reviewing it as a movie, it was pretty good. Sonny chiba's fav apprentice is back for this one and shows a lot of the stuff that he did in Ninja in the Dragon's den. His dad was kille dand now hes like that last of his line and he needs to defeat chiba's evil ninja character. Some very good exhibitions and good hand to hand. All the action is VERY good, but there is not enough, all in all final fight was good, very good parts in the movie all the way through. Much better than ninja wars-a similiar movie that came with this collection."
Not your average martial arts film

"I saw this film in 1985 when I was 13, and was knocked off my feet due to the fact that not only was this a good story, but the music took it to a different place. The music was a jazz infused score that reminded me of the sounds that were coming out of Japan in the 70's thanks to the Japanese Jazz/Fusion group Hiroshima. Japan was really big into urban contemporary jazz at this time when Hiroshoma ushered in this style into their culture. Hiroyuki "Henry" Sanada became a favorite Japanese actor of mine as a result of this film, and I made it a mission to track down every film he had done. The music made it an unusual treat in this film, especially Sanada's dance sequence that gave you a glimpse into his former pop star days. In case you didn't know Henry Sanada was a 70's pop star in Japan for a minute; he also is a Shakespearean trained actor with an immense classical background in theatre. Linking up with Sonny Chiba's Japan Action Club as one of Chiba's stunt actor's took him to another level in his career, which is why at age 43 he is still doing his thing in films such as The Last Samurai and Rush Hour 3. It's hard not to love this film, especially for those with open minds to alternatives in Japanese cinema."
