Storyline

A squadron of Japanese Self-Defense Force soldiers find themselves transported through time to their country's warring states era, when rival samurai clans were battling to become the supreme Shogun. The squad leader, Lt. Iba, sees this as the perfect opportunity to realize his dream of becoming the ruler of Japan. To achieve this, he teams his troops up with those of Kagatori, a samurai daimyo who also aspires to become Shogun. Are either of these power-hungry warriors to be trusted?

Trivia

Initially the producers approached the Japan Ground Self-Defense Force (JGSDF) for props and vehicles, but the army withdrew its support after reading that soldiers go AWOL in the script. For that reason, old and sometimes outdated equipment (like M3 sub-machine guns) had to be used. The tank featured in the movie was even built entirely from scratch. See more »

Goofs

None of the vehicles run out of fuel despite being stranded 400 years before the creation of fossil fuels for weeks. See more »

Alternate Versions

The UK version is cut by 40 secs to remove shots of horse-falls. See more »

Probably the worst film ever made.
2 December 2000 | by steve-862See all my reviews

I'm sorry but this is just awful. I have told people about this film and some of the bad acting that is in it and they almost don't believe me. There is nothing wrong with the idea, modern day Japanese troops get pulled back in time to the days of Busido warriors and with their modern weapons are a match for almost everything. When the troops first realise something strange is happening does every single person in the back of the transport need to say "Hey my watch has stopped"? Imagine lines like that being repeated 15+ times before they say anything else and you have the movie's lack of greatness in a nutshell.
