When the third Shogun, Tokugawa Iemitsu died, it sparked a struggle for power pitting the most powerful clans in Japan against each other in an era of bloody violence. This film version led to the popular television series ("Kage no Gundan", starring Chiba Shinichi!) which ran for 5 seasons telling the story of a secret organization of ninja spies who work hard to fight corruption and evil. Starring the magnificent swordsman Watase Tsunehiko as Hattori Hanzo, the leader of the "Shadow Warriors" and directed by the great filmmaker Kudo Eiichi, this is a dark look inside the violent era of early Japan. The story unfolds as Iemitsu's heir Ietsuna is kidnapped by the rival Koga ninja group and Hanzo fights together with his brother against the evil forces that threaten to destroy the nation! If they would have left out this scene that makes it seem as if the Iga & Koga Ninja's were playing football, this would have been a near perfect film, great fighting scenes & very dark in atmosphere. I actually think this one would have been better in
