5.0 out of 5 stars Shadow Hunters part One - Worth the wait. August 25, 2005
Just received part one of the 1972 Toho film SHADOW HUNTERS a film that I have been waiting a long time to see. Animeigo has done another terrific job with this one as part of their Samurai film series from Japan on DVD. Can you imagine three cold blooded killers being sent on a mission which is constantly interrupted by ninja, female assassins, and corrupt officials all desiring a deed these three are trying to deliver to Edo? Lots and lots of blood and violence before they ride off one final time into the sunset. The hand to hand combat with scores of ninja is worth the price alone as they battle in some really terrific moves toward their objective. Easy to read subtitles make this journey even more enjoyable. And just think part two with even more action will be released soon. This thirty plus years wait has been well worth it!

MAN!!! What A movie!! This "Ninja vs. Samurai" film IS SOOOO ACTION-PACKED and is HIGH QUALITY. The action scenes were very well choreoghraphied, there is blood and gore, cool fights between samurais and ninjas, COOL ninja tricks, beautiful cinematoghraphy, GREAT acting and not to mention it's interesting story,...I mean, three samurais wandering around the country killing enemies for money and wanted DEAD by an army of ninjas. COOOOL!!!!!

I remember the high quality action-packed fantasy anime called Ninja Scroll that have a similar concept witch is about a wanderer swordman that is also wanted DEAD by an army of ninjas. WELL!! The concept is similar but this movie is NOT fantasy and is about three wanderer swordmen fighting an army of ninjas.

P.S: Another cool stuf is that the director is a celebrity because he is the one that directed TORA!TORA!TORA! If you like COOL action-packed samurai movies directed by celebrities then I recommend Lone Wolf and Cub: Baby Cart to Hades and Zatoichi: Darkness is his Ally.

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