Good Ninja movie
on 10 June 2015
I enjoyed this movie. If you are expecting a plot driven everything will be ok in the end movie, you will be sorely disappointed. This is a Manga comic made into live action. It has all the right ingredients special techniques, secret movies. Yes they have over done the wire work, and CGI, but for a ninja movie to work there has to be lots of action this movie has it. The down side of the movie is the characters changing sides as often as the wind blows, for some of the dumbest reason imaginable.
Kamui was poor even by the standards of his poor village. He has a burning desire to become stronger. To this end he joins the ninja. After years of training, including the disciplining of a "breakaway" ninja. He has risen up the ranks to become one off the best. Now he decides to breakaway himself. However no one leaves the ninja alive. Constantly on the run, and fighting for his life have made suspicious to everyone. So of course the first person he does trust seems to stab him in the back, just so he can save him. Even when Kamui finds some sort of community, is he just creating more targets for the Ninja Hunters vengeance? This movie is brutal with over the top action and fights, and traumatic in many of the innocent deaths on thee whim of the Lords and Ninja, but the movie is delivers what it is supposed to.
