The great actor Konoe Jushiro (from Yagyu Bugeicho movie series) stars as Wadakuro, one of four ronin hired to fight against the Shogunate's plot to abolish the Gamo Clan, who are struggling to reinstate their young heir Tanemaru as their Lord. Facing the threat of the Koga Ninja, Wadakuro shows his own cruelty while on a personal vendetta. This is a very brutal ninja movie, lot's of realistic ninja action, violent deaths, dark story line and completely without any "humor" elements that Toei used to incorperate back in the golden era.

Directed by: YAMAUCHI Tetsuya
Cast: KONOE Jushiro, TAMURA Takahiro, YAMASHIRO Shingo, KAWARAZAKI Choichiro


Definitely one of the greatest Samurai / Ninja films ever made, a Japanese classic, the score alone is enough to make you feel unsettled and may have you looking behind your back for a sly Koga Ninja. This film holds absolutely no punches at all very mean spirited and depraved, some of the most excellent fight & battle scenes with some intense brutal slayings by both Wadakuro ( Konoe Jushiro) & the Koga clan as well, you will not believe the merciless onslaught your eyes are set upon, while watching this movie, very shocking for the time of the release & astonishing as well, this film is not to be passed up by any means. I will definitely be looking & hoping to find some more films with Konoe Jushiro as a star, since this is the only one I know... he is most excellent in his acting and all around screen presence. I think this is a film that anyone can enjoy or at least appreciate!
