Editorial Reviews

From the Bloody Pen of Koike Kazuo, Creator of "Lone Wolf & Cub" and "Lady Snowblood"!

If they're lucky, they die quickly!

Deep in the mountains of feudal Japan, a group of children endure cruel and unorthodox training in order to become the Shogunate's most secret and deadly weapons — the Demon Spies!

Their true identities are hidden — even from each other. Behind their demon masks, they are educated in the deadly arts of infiltration, espionage, assassination — and seduction! If they survive to become strong enough to kill their teachers, they will become — the Demon Spies!

Sent on a suicide mission to uncover a deadly conspiracy, five inexperienced Demon Spies must infiltrate a powerful fief, discover the location of its secret arsenal, and destroy it. But Lord Shogen, the Demon Hunter, plans to brutally interrogate, ingeniously torture, and cruelly execute — the Demon Spies!

I saw this film on the previews for another samurai movie LWC series.. and decided to give it a try. I will rate the story/characters/action/

Story: Not a bad premise, but interesting enough to keep you involved. Kind of psychotic with their interest in becoming demons.. The plot has alot of betrayal and espionage.. of course they are ninjas. A group of bastard children who are raised into the ways of ninjitsu hell bent on the way of the demon. Death is a common sight to these children. The story goes on as they set out to extinguish evil from the world through their code of death. Immediately they are drawn into a dangerous mission into destroying an armory cache of western weapons. The story has twists and turns with the betrayal of deaths of the ninja demon team. In the end the story held up and worth a watching. I think they could've used more of the seduction ninja techniques in the story and could have added some humorous situations.. the movie was serious.. but kind of campy. Humor would have made the story a little more interesting. Like in any of these movies of this period.. I think this film tried to bite off more than it could chew.. nonetheless..

Characters: An interesting group of actors and the character development was great. For the scope of the movie alot of the demon spies and their lifestyle serve as a basis for the movie. Each of the characters are driven by their own mysterious ambitions, yet all will follow the code of the demon. There are 5 demon spies. 2 of the demon spies actually fall in love with eachother although one doesn't admit to it. More could have been done to help with the character development, yet enough was expressed and explain to follow.

While not being an exceptional film, it has its moments. A deep story plot is balanced by fantastic fight scenes
