The SAMURAI COLLECTION presents three action-packed samurai films starring Japanese martial arts legend Sonny Chiba. In G.I. SAMURAI (1979) a Japanese army unit warps itself 400 years back in time and ends up facing an army of samurai warriors. In LEGEND OF THE EIGHT SAMURAI (1984) a princess whose clan is destroyed by an army of phantom warriors bands together with eight masterless samurai to defeat the ghostly swordsmen. And in NINJA WARS (1984) a ruthless warlord enlists the help of an evil wizard and his five monk warriors in an effort to seduce a beautiful princess and win control of Japan.Format: DVD MOVIE Genre: SPORTS/GAMES/MIXED MARTIAL ARTS UPC: 787364750597

I was expecting more traditional samurai films but these are all fantasy. G.I. Samurai is a time travel movie while the other two are more of the sword and sorcery type. I enjoyed them all even though Chiba is not the main star of the last two. This set comes in a nice case that opens up like a book. A good value for this set.

Just buy it! It is ludicrously inexpensive, and you get two and a half great movies out of the deal! Sonny Chiba is a classic bad ass, and this series is mostly good. I really wish they would have replaced G.I. Samurai with a different film however, as it is the clear weak link here, but its still worth it just for Ninja Wars and Legend of the eight samurai. I would have preferred to have Samurai Reincarnation in there myself, but oh well.

G.I. Samurai:
As I said its the weak link. A movie about time traveling Japanese soldiers fighting samurai. Its a bit boring by comparison in my mind. Still a little far out and for what is essentially chump change you could do far worse.

Legend of the Eight Samurai:
This movie is one of my all time favorite fantasy films. It has everything you could ever want. Its like a live action Final Fantasy anime practically. It has weapons, wizards, witches, poison breathing babes, Giant centipedes, old hags that rip off their face, undead samurais, a giant snake, magic crystals, Sonny Chiba... I could keep going but I think it would be best to just watch this one.

Ninja Wars:
Ninja Wars is a close second in the box set. First off the name says it all. Or does it? I don't know. Does the name ninja wars imply that you are going to be watching a movie where two women switch heads, and 7 super human fighting monks terrify the land with powers ranging from super strength to deadly acid vomit? The plot is a bit hard to follow only because two central characters switch heads early on in the movie, at which point I realized I needed a flow chart to keep up with who was who and what they were doing, but finally i just relaxed and shifted my focus to the absurdity and um...ninjas!!!

Its a great box set, and a great bargain. Add this one to your collection.

Sonny Chiba is always great and these three movies are no exception. Keep in mind they were filmed in the 80's. Even with that, they're really fun to watch. Ninja Wars is a bit silly, but then that's what makes it a fun movie to watch. Don't get this thinking it's Shadow Warriors with all Sonny all of the time. Get this because you love samurai movies!

These are a few lesser known Sonny Chiba movies. They are the equivalent of the old "B" western movies. They are shot in a very short period, without the greatest of scripts.
