I have over 250 Japanese movies, most of them made during the 1960s and before. All of these are subtitled and you actually have to watch the movie with your eyes to follow it. If you pay close attention it’s quite another experience. It also pays to watch the film more than once. You will see things the second time around you didn’t even notice the first, and the same is true with the third time.
It's not like English language films where you can do something else while you're "watching" the film, step away from the monitor for a bit or otherwise be inattentive. You have to follow the subtitles or you miss much of the movie. If you do this there are a lot of very good Japanese films out there. Otherwise you just won't quite get it.
It reminds me of a made-for-tv-movie, which it probabely was by Japanese standards. One scene has a woman raped, which make the rating R, due to person being raped exposing her breasts. NOT FOR KIDS....
The sword play is nice, not allot of blood, not like on the level of other Japanese films.
Anyways, if you are thinking of buying it as ANIME like Basilisk is.. This isn't that at all. SOOOOO DON'T BUY IT.

For an epic ninja film series, you'd think there would be more than one film location; the woods. That's right, all 4 of the films take place in the woods almost 95% of the time. Read morePublished on March 7, 2009 by Murder0Ne
