Kamui trusts no one. He was cruelly shunned by his people as a child. Now a solitary warrior, he wanders Japan, surviving on lethal skill and instinct to evade countless violent attacks from the ninja clan he left behind. A turn of luck brings a band of fugitive ninja who offer Kamui a new life amongst them as a pirate, killing sharks for suffering fishing villages. While the tempting promise of respect and protection leaves him conflicted, the merciless members of his former clan are closing in, and his deadliest foe is poised to strike. The battle is never over for Kamui, the ninja who stands alone.

my desbelief but did not take away my enjoyment from the film after all he is a Ninja.The majority of the action
is in the beginning of the film and the end of the film.
The story revolves KAMUI a ninja constantly being hunted for leaving his clan, struggling to find a place to call home where he is safe.
Through a series of events he is taken in by a small fishing village, where he might finally find what he is looking for.
I enjoyed this story as well though there are some slow points in it and can be a little bit confusing half way through the film at first
*SPOILER* (pay very close attention to the old man who likes to paint.) then you will have a better understanding of whats going on.
To some it up i really Ilked it,
if your skeptical of the cgi and the plot i recommend renting it. but if that does not bother you and your a fan
of Japanese films like me, I say buy it its worth it.
Thank You for reading i hope it's helpful.
Directed by Yoichi Sai (Quill, Blood And Bones), "Kamui Gaiden" (translating as something along the lines of "A Supplemental Biography of Kamui," to distinguish it from Sanpei's original "Kamui Den"), this version of the Kamui story retains the political nature of the character while thrusting him into an action-packed ninja spectacular. In this film, Kamui is not only an outcast ninja but a member of the hinin-caste. Hinin, which translates as non-human, were the Japanese equivalent of the Indian Untouchables, a caste so low that they had no legal rights or dignity. Discrimination against the hinin caste continues even today, known by the term burakumin.
From birth, Kamui (Matsuyama Kenichi, Death Note) faces horrendous abuse and discrimination, like all of his caste, and his experiences causes him to harden and dedicate himself to becoming strong.Read more ›
Also while the character stories and personalities aren't bad for the movie story line I actually preferred the previous other two ninja movies more then this one. Overall it's not a bad action movie but not a great one either but if you're looking for something to pass the time and have a need to watch a ninja action flick this one is an alright one to check out.
The title of my review comes from a line in the graphic novel, the full meaning of which I will keep to myself lest I spoil the endings of either the movie or the books. I thought S.Miranda and Zack Davisson wrote excellent reviews and my reason for chiming in was to assure readers of the Manga that it was a well-done adaptation; conversely, those who enjoy the movie may want to check out the original source material! You can't lose either way!

Wow, what a movie. It had to be adopted from the historical aspects of ninja life, except for the obvious flying, which I winked at but overall what a great movie. Read morePublished 1 month ago by anthony deleveaux
The actions scenes that they had were good, WHEN they had them. The movie starts off with a bang that slows down quite a bit..to the point of boredom. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Freeze
