Editorial Reviews

For the first time ever, these 4 martial arts classics are available together uncut, unedited and now available for an incredible value! Chiba's legacy as a martial arts master, teacher and movie star is showcased in this exclusive collection featuring the following international hits: G.I. Samurai (aka Time Slip), Ninja Wars (aka Black Magic Wars), Legend of the Eight Samurai, and Resurrection of Golden Wolf.

Customer Reviews

Each film features the original Japanese audio, with optional and excellent yellow english subtitles.
Ali
Some awe inspiring action and touching meditative moments mix with cheeseball J-Pop and an EXTREMELY meandering storyline to create a one-of-a-kind experience.
M. Smith
While neither one of these films will ever be considered "classics" by Hollywood standards, they are both a lot of fun!

Of course if you are a Shinichi "Sonny" Chiba fan this will be a dream come true; 4 films at an incredible price. The individual films are described elsewhere, so I wanted to correct the product description, from amazon. These are not the old, terribly dubbed english versions in pan scan format at all. Four films, on three dvd's, each film is presented in a beautiful, anamorphic widescreen transfer, featuring sharp images and vibrant color. and most importantly, for once the awful English dubbing is gone. Each film features the original Japanese audio, with optional and excellent yellow english subtitles. (There is no English language option at all) These are the Japan versions of the films as well, much longer, uncut versions never seen in the West. The result is a high quality product at a wonderful price. for the first time these films can be seen the way they were meant to be seen, and not recut and voiced over by some incompetant idiot with no respect for the artistic value of these rare works. just be aware when buying this for the comical effect you remember when you saw the old versions, it is a different experience entirely in the original language. Great product!

Thanks to Quentin Tarantino Sonny Chiba has had a bit of a career revival. Since Tarantino featured a Chiba fanatic main character in his screenplay for True Romance Chiba's been brought back to public attention in the U.S.

Over the last few years many different Sonny Chiba collections have been released on DVD. Some of them are good, some not so good. This one, The Sonny Chiba Collection, is one of the better releases. BCI has again teamed up with Adness to release anamorphic widescreen versions of some of Sonny Chiba's best movies....along with a couple titles that don't really belong in a "Sonny Chiba Collection."

First, the classic Japanese hijacking/extortion film (and the basis for the movie Speed), Bullet Train is included in both the international edit (English dub, 115 minutes) and the original Japanese version (152 minutes). The sound on the international version is pretty thin and tinny, and English dubs of Asian movies is usually mediocre at best - although this one isn't too bad. The Japanese version, however, is very good. The picture quality is excellent for a non-restored print of a 35 year old movie, and the sound is more than acceptable for a film of that vintage. The only downside to this movie (as part of this set)? Not a lot of Chiba. He has a major supporting role, but is not the main character (that role went to the great Ken Takakura). Still, this is a classic thriller (and I would have paid $[...] for an anamorphic widescreen release of the Japanese version by itself).

Golgo 13 is a top notch Chiba movie, where he plays an international hit man.

Mill Creek's Sonny Chiba Collection features 4 great Japanese action flicks, all from the late 70s through early 80s, all filled with copious amounts of ass kicking and a varying quantity of Sonny Chiba.

GI SAMURAI is the only film in this set that can be truly said to STAR Sonny Chiba. He plays a JSDF commander zapped back to in time to feudal Japan along with his squad and some very heavy artillery. Their only way to return home . . . is to f%#& up history! Chiba is absolutely glorious in his role as the unstable commander. Some awe inspiring action and touching meditative moments mix with cheeseball J-Pop and an EXTREMELY meandering storyline to create a one-of-a-kind experience. GI SAMURAI!

LEGEND OF THE EIGHT SAMURAI is a no-holds-barred epic fantasy filled with demons, monsters, romance, tragedy, and THE EIGHT SAMURAI! Sonny Chiba has a strong supporting role and gets to mix it up with the demon army. No real karate stuff here, though.

RESURRECTION OF GOLDEN WOLF is a sleazy crime thriller about a brutal thief who lives a daring double life. And that thief is . . . NOT Sonny Chiba! Chiba plays a minor supporting character with an important role in a subplot. The film is very good regardless, and very weird too! "When do we get to Jupiter?"

NINJA WARS, aka NINJA DEATH or DEATH OF A NINJA, is another dark fantasy feature in the vein of EIGHT SAMURAI. Sonny Chiba is onscreen for a grand total of maybe five minutes, but there's enough twisted visions and dark doings [head swapping, puking monks, HELL] to make up for that. Think of it as an unrelated bonus film in the Sonny Chiba Collection.

With anamorphic transfers and the original Japanese audio, you can't go wrong dropping $$$ on this set! [Aside from Mill Creek's awful new packaging - very slick looking on the outside, but the disc storage isn't very practical!]

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I bought this collection after the purchasing the vastly superior The Sister Street Fighter Collectionwith high hopes. What is apparent upon opening this collection is that it suffers from being largely an afterthought. Two of the discs (double features of "Bodyguard," "Karate Warriors," "Sister Street Fighter" and "Dragon Princess"-all dubbed) are from the "Welcome To The Grindhouse" series (see Welcome to the Grindhouse: The Bodyguard/Sister Street Fighterand Welcome to the Grindhouse: Dragon Princess/Karate Warriors), and one of the discs is simply inserted in a paper sleeve laid in between the clear DVD holders! To make this collection even more irritating is that both versions of "Bullet Train" were released by the very same company (BCI) along with "Golgo 13" and "Virus" as Sonny Chiba Action Pack [DVD] Virus/Golgo 13/ Bullet Train. So you are getting a bunch of DVDs which were previously released and re-packaged for your enjoyment. For a more coherent collection, I would opt for the "Sister Street Fighter Collection." To add insult to injury, Golgo 13 suffered from a manufacturing defect!
