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.
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!!!
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.

Any movie that features lots and lots of Ninjas in it is worth buying. This movie has armies of ninjas.
Movies like the Godfather, for example, are classics.... Read more
