Editorial Reviews

The timeless legend of the lone, outcast ninja is brought to life in Kamui Gaiden, a vibrant film directed by acclaimed Japanese Academy Award® winner Yoichi Sai.
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.

I enjoyed this film quite alot, i liked the action scenes despite the some what corny cgi. the action scenes are something i had to suspend
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.

From its very beginning, the story of the renegade ninja Kamui has been political. Created in 1967 by leftest-artist Sanpei Shirato, Kamui was a symbol of Japan's rigid social classes and rules, and the woes that befall those who try to rage against the machine. Sanpei used Kamui to tell tales of discrimination, oppression and the exploitation of workers. Since the characters first appearance in Garo magazine, Kamui has been adapted into anime and continuing manga series, but this 2009 movie is I believe the first Kamui live-action film.

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.

After watching a few other ninja movies like Shinobi - Heart Under Blade and Goemon I decided to give this one a try.While not it's not bad it's more as confusing somewhat then anything else as past and present situations sometimes get intermixed with no explanation or telling the viewer. One thing don't expect incredible CGI effects like in top dollar Hollywood movies,that's not to say the effects are terrible but obviously there not going to match up to the effects of say the movie Avatar and the like.

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 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. I would've given this movie 5 stars if they had kept up with the action as what was done, was done well.

Kamui Gaiden is a quite an enjoyable film if look past at the cheesy CGI effects and a farfetched story. Kamui Gaiden is loosely based of the popular manga series in Japan and developed a anime series in the late 60's. It's starts off slow but gradually picks up to explain some of the characters' motives. Or you looking for a movie to blow off the weekend then this movie for you.

This was a gamble as I knew nothing about this movie, but at a very good price, it panned out exceedingly well. I don't generally read (or write): reviews because I want to appreciate the movie without having some idiot reviewer exposing the plot or other elements that I prefer to experience on my own. Here, I found this movie to be a noteworthy effort, and I enjoyed it thoroughly. It's a great 'ninja'(?) romantic action packed story that caught and held my attention from start to finish.

I enjoyed this movie from the beginning to the end. Exceeding my expectations with a story and how it was executed. The actors were believable and no over and above fight scenes. I would and have recommended this movie available via amazon ss best method. Well packaged, delivered on time and the product was as described.
