Additional character


Set in the time of the Tokugawa regime, where the Shogun has outlawed the Japanese Christians, since they fear that their religion will incite rebellion and chaos. However, they believe in a prophecy, that a man named Tenshi, will hoist the cross and become the new Jesus. But there is a darker prophecy, if Tenshi does not become Christ, he will return and be reborn as Satan. Jubei Yagyu and a few others can fight against the looming evil that is to come.

Its not that bad.
12 June 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is not as bad as other people make it out to be. It has great action and alright character development. The series would be better if someone stop being lazy and made an ending to an alright series. People have said that this movie is way to violent and I personally don't agree with that. Maybe they didn't see the countless number of people killed in Ninja Scroll, and if you have seen the Guyver series then this is no worse. All I'm saying is that the movie is not as bad as other people would make you think it to be. So if you get a chance I recommend that you go out and rent it or if you have the chance buy it. Hopefully we will not be left on a cliffhanger with the way Hells Spawn ended and the next or final installment to this series could finish where they left off. With a little more character development and a true ending this series could very well become a classic anime. This will only happen if people stop crying over how much violence there is, after all its just animation and its not even real.

PS: For the last time this is by no means related to Ninja Scroll. If you even bothered to watch the film you would see that the Jubei in Resurrection loses one of his eyes while he is being trained. I know that I'm not blind, but Jubei in Scrool has both on his eyes. So other then that obvious fact, o wait, lets not forget that they look different, and their last names AREN'T THE SAME. So, other then that, then maybe you might confuse them for the same person, only if you are a complete retard. So thank you.
