I loved the first film - which I watched several times -- and enjoyed the second film, but I got lost as the series progressed. I thought the filming was very good, although I have a bias toward black-and-white films. On the other hand I thought there was too much fighting and swordplay but this is a problem with most samurai movies. You can get the impression that all these guys did back then was chop each other up when that’s not really the case. On the other hand these are movies to entertain the public and not documentary films.

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's not great but it's not bad really. lol Ok that is probably not what your looking for in terms of a review but it's the truth. All four movies together for less than 5 bucks is a good deal. If you liked Rogue Ninja or Ninja vs Alien (same producer)then you'll be able to sink your shuko into this.It's not as good as Sarutobi Sasuke Army of Darkeness series but it's worth 5 bucks. I will say this though, buy the 2 disc version it's a buck more but comes in WS and has original Jap/subtitles and Eng dub.

Okay, why does Amazon, place a non-ANIME film into the ANIME section??? Although this film(s) collection is sort of good, with a somewhat good story. But is it on the level of the Lone Wolf and Cub level Series NO WAY CLOSE.

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.

Made the unfortunate mistake of buying this under the impression it had something to do with Basilisk or Shinobi: Heart Under Blade. Wrong and wrong again. This is hand cam ninja soap opera. Interesting, but ultimately not too good and definately NOT what I was hoping it would be.

The others below are just mad because it's not an anime. This is a great series. It contains 4 movies and for under 5 dollars! This is a complete deal for Ninja/martial arts fans like myself.
