Search for a secret village
31 May 2017 | by sinful-2See all my reviews

The shogun and a powerful clan and a rich merchant and several ninjas try to find a secret village and stop others from doing the same.

I would not rate this movie as a masterpiece but it is a quite entertaining ninja movie. Many deceitful characters in the movie and a protagonist that is the ladies man. So there is also some romance and a fair share of people do not survive to the end of the movie.

Camera work and acting is good and fine but not anything you most likely will remember for years to come.

I would recommend it for people that do enjoy some sword fencing and enjoy Japanese movies. I think it was above average in entertainment value.
