Super Ninjas, Five Element Ninjas, Chinese Super Ninjas, call it what you will, but if you know this title, than you know it is pretty much the greatest, classic kung-fu film ever! Not only is it the best kung-fu film, it is arguably the greatest ninja flick as well. This movie is action packed from the start, and chock full of glorious weapons in action, flowing glue-on facial hair and side burns, and copious amounts of fake gore. And the story is actually pretty damn good as well, not difficult to follow or lost in the translation like so many other films from the Far East. But enough about the movie, this is a review of the Blu-Ray DVD. As a fan of this film, I have collected nearly every release on VHS and DVD to come out, including all the European import versions, bootlegs, and most recently a Mandarin standard DVD release that included a restored wide-screen version with the original Chinese dialog. This was a treat, because for the past 30 years I have only been able to watch this film in 4:3 TV mode with the English dubbing. So to see the film in its original scope with the original audio was a real treat for a long time fan. I figured this version would be the best I would ever see, and that was until this Blu-Ray version came out, which is not only in its original wide-screen format, but it includes both the original dialog audio as well as the hilarious, nostalgic English language track. The picture is excellent, and appears fully restored. And perhaps the most important part of any good release, is that the film is devoid of cuts and edits. In many previous releases, this film had much of the excessive violence removed and the film cut for length. But this Blu-Ray release is pretty much perfection on plastic! This is the ultimate version to own, and I suppose the only additional comments I can make about this release, is regarding the special features, which are not all that exciting, but worth a watch once.
