Editorial Reviews

Tokogawa Ieyasu is the ruler of Japan. But one last loose thread must be tied up before his domination is complete — the destruction of the Toyotomi clan, now besieged in Osaka castle. Ieyasu's ninjas are the only ones who can penetrate the fortress, but unfortunately for Ieyasu, Kirigakure Saizo (Raizo Ichikawa) and his fellow Toyotomi ninja can just as easily get out. As armies of samurai maneuver for battle, the fate of the nation will be decided by a desperate struggle in the dark.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wild for Ninjas! June 23, 2009
Format:DVD
Okay, so the same actor is playing a different character in the same series - who cares? The action, story, camera angles and shots are as good in this episode as in the first three.

I'm not the connoisseur of 1960's samurai flicks that some folks are, but I know what I like. I have tremendous love for the works of Kurosawa and Kobayashi, and this series (the four that I've seen; there's eight plus an additional without Ichikawa as lead) really stacks up visually and story wise.

I don't think I've seen such a fascinating variety of shots in a black and white samurai film. Just when you're not convinced they had the budget to pull it off, here comes a massive cavalry charge and a dozen explosions! In fact, even the monotony of interior scenes so common in Japanese films (sue me - I get bored with parlor drama) are made fascinating by great camera work, editing and acting.

Add that to a great score by the legendary Ifukube Akira and this film is a heavy weight all on it's own.

Oh! I almsot forgot - there's NINJAS! Lots of 'em, too, fighting each other. And not the goofy wire-work special effects baloney that's usually attributed to the Shadow Art, but action you'll believe possible and still cool, daring and scary as hell.

AnimEigo are to be commended for a wonderful dvd presentation - the picture and sound are crisp and free of blemishes. And the extras - Wow! the extras are astonishing. You get three different levels of captions, original trailers, maps, and a twenty or more page on-screen in depth history of feudal Japan as it relates to the historical personages and places presented in the film. Absolutely fascinating and informative.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exit Goemon, enter Saizo October 23, 2009
Format:DVD
One of the unique strengths of the "Shinobi no Mono" series is how the emphasis is put on the stars. The characters change even though the same actors are appearing. What this means, is that if a character's story arc completes, the actors simply take on a different role in the next film. It is a not entirely unheard of practice in the West. Actor Bruce Spence appeared as the Gyro Captain in The Road Warrior, and then again in the sequel Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome as a different character entirely.

In the fourth entry in the "Shinobi no Mono" series, the ninja Goemon steps off the stage, having walked to the end of his path of vengeance, and actor Ichikawa Raizo steps into the new role of Kirigakure Saizo. Saizo is a ninja charged with spying on Tokugawa Ieyasu's forces as Tokugawa lays siege to Osaka castle in 1614. Tokugawa has his own ninjas, and Saizo and the Tokugawa ninjas wage silent ninja warfare with each other in a deadly game of cat-and-cat. Saizo is assisted by the Lady Akane (Isomura Midori, Zatoichi Challenged), who is a love interest for Saizo as well. And for a ninja, love is never a good idea.

Ichikawa is joined in his new role by Wakayama Tomisaburo (Lone Wolf and Cub) who played the warlord Nobunaga Oda in the first three "Shinobi no Mono" films, but now returns as Saizo's lord and mentor Yukimura Sanada. Saburo Date (

5.0 out of 5 stars New chapter,new saga! May 7, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
New characters,new chapter it's ninja action at it's best! SNM4 is great,the ninja action is kinda a combo of the type of action in the first 2 films and a little bit of modern superninja action(a few to many tramp jumps and wire slides for my tastes)but still a really cool ninja flick! If you have the other films in collection you should have this one as well.
