This movie is everything what people want from a martial arts movie! It contains incredible stunts sometimes with wire works! It has kungfu magic! It has ninja trickery! And there is a lot of comedy! This movie is without doubt one of the best martial movies made in history! Still It is very difficult to get a copy of this movie! Now I finally received a German copy and not even bothered it is in the German language because it is all about the action anyway which is superb! The martial arts is more than excellent! A young Conan Lee and Hiroyuki Sanada (The last samurai,The promise) show their magnificent skills! The introduction of this movie reminded me of several other movies about ninja's made in the eighties! This intro show what the ninja's are capable of! But something about it is off like it is meant as a parody (and tribute) of the other ninja movies! Compared to other movies about ninja's this movie is far superior! I hope that people who are responsible for distribution will recognize what a gem it is and produce it on much larger scale than it is done now!
