Storyline

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.

extremely violent
30 September 2001 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I can't agree. I bought this movie, thinking it was a sequel to Ninja Scroll. The main character is named Jubei and looks like the character from Scroll, but I can't see how he could be. I watched it and immediately resold it. I saw very little plot. It was one continuous splatter movie, with rape mixed in. I was highly offended by it. Don't let children see this!
