Wow is all I can say. After years of dealing with kung-fu on crappy pan and scan VHS and letterbox format DVD's, this edition is a rare treat. First off it's a fully anamorphic transfer, meaning it will preserve it's original aspect ratio on widescreen televisions. It looks fantastic on my Samsung widescreen HDTV. The colors are rich and vibrant, making the film look better than it probably ever has. The fact that Fox and Fortune Star took such care in transferring a fairly unknown kung-fu film warms my heart. Lest I forget the DTS soundtrack which actually offers a noticed separation instead of a generic Pro Logic sound, unlike nearly every other "digitally restored" DVD coming out these days. The inclusion of the original trailer and original Cantonese soundtrack are like a buying a donut that comes with a refill of jelly.
The story is fantastic too. There are all kinds of ninjas! Kite ninjas, vanishing ninjas, even naked foxy ninjas! The score is very effective as well. A lot of older kung-fu flicks either have no score or a scattershot one at best. This movie has a pronounced heroic theme that's quite catchy.
This kind of treatment should be given to more kung-fu films.

This movie really has all you could ever ask for: ninjas, ninjas, and more ninjas! Now, I know you're sitting there thinking to yourself, "Wait a minute. Wouldn't all those ninjas get a little repetative at times?" Well, all you doubters can walk outside and get a big 'ol ninja star to the forehead for all I care, because it doesn't get repetative in the least. The reason for that is there is a wide variety of ninjas in "Duel to the Death." It's got flying ninjas, exploding ninjas, hang-gliding ninjas, giant ninjas, multiplying ninjas, naked ninjas, suicide bomber ninjas, librarian ninjas, ocean ninjas, sand ninjas, and so many more.
And, oh yeah, there's this little thing about the two greatest warriors from China and Japan fighting each other for the honor of their respective countries. But that's really just a side note to all the ninja antics going on.
So, if you're like me, then you'll love this movie because it's got so darn many.....wait for it....NINJAS!!! Rock on!!!

Picture:Scope;2.35:1,sharp,detailed.Only minor flaws visible,not often.Excellent Cinematography can now be seen,complete.Some of the darkest scenes appear with a slight haze.4/5. Sound:Crisp,clear,the drawing of each sword,running through water,and each jump and flying action are crystal clear.some slight background noise can be heard for a very short time approxiamately 12 minuets into the film,it lasts for about 20 seconds.I did not hear any other faults.The English Subtitles are not at all accurate;some sentences are not complete,some words are missing a letter,and some explanations seem incomplete. This did not distract me at all,but was a little irritating at times.4/5. The Film:Some excellent sword-fighting,less Kung-Fu.Characters can fly almost at will,move lightning fast,and somtimes turn invisible!The story is an entertaining one,but has it's slow points,made a little frustrating by those subtitles!You cannot root for either of the two main Characters,as each is equal in that;they both have supreme determination to represent China or Japan,in honour,dignity,e.t.c,and especially,by the sword! The final battle scene is made the more memorable by the outstanding Cinematography.4/5.

"Duel to the Death" is one of those films you either love or hate. Some are turned off by the campy action and editing (and believe me, this film makes editing look real easy) while others love the action, storyline, characters, and above all - ninjas.
And yes, there ARE a lot of ninjas in this movie. Naked ninjas, ninjas that walk on water, big ninjas, ninjas that leap out of bigger ninjas, flying ninjas...the list goes on. Well what do you expect when the ninjas are the bad guys? Any way, at least the two main characters are likable enough.
The final showdown as well is exciting and also leaves you with some essense of what the characters are like, rather than indiscriminantly killing off characters like some kung fu films do.
One more thing: I am in love with this soundtrack. If there was any way I could get my hands on the main theme...I would be truly happy.

I saw it like that when Iv read the reviews. This movie got it all!. Its a classic for HK kung-fu movies as Scarface would be for gangsta movies.
What I liked the most about this film, despite being an old film, is that ur not left on ur hunger with lil teasers. For example, when u see a fight scene that u like, and it promptly stop (because the guys run away, or they got killed like instantly) all u do is hoping that u will see it again, like if ur doing sex and someone intterupts u. WELL THIS MOVIE BRINGS U TO ORGASM! Thats right, no lil teasing, its goes until the end with stronger and better fights until the famous DUEL that happens! And the last fight is the strongest and most complete! Its a little hardcore, but so realistic. This movie rocks, and the DVD is cool as well!

I like this movie a lot for several reasons. Let's start off with the DVD itself, it's good. The picture and sound are nice and widescreen is always the best. I like the subtitle and language options, stuff like that makes a difference with a movie like this. The movie itself has an intriguing story and cool characters (I liked the Japanese swordman the best). The swordfights and battle scenes are great, and so are the special effects (especially considering this was an early 80s release). And yes there are tons of ninjas, flying ninjas, and they are awesome. This is just a cool movie, with a good plot that keeps up the action right up until the duel to the death at the end. Worth buying, especially if you're into Chinese cinema like i am.
