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.

lets just get one thing straight.
13 May 2003 | by (PA, US.) – See all my reviews

as aposed to what many people think this is not the sequel to Ninja Scroll. even though the characters names are the same they look nothing alike, it isn't the same person.

to the review. I hated this movie. I had to struggle to get through it. for one thing, this kinda stuff really happened. stuff as in the Christians being killed by the Japanese. they took a real historical event and made it into a very fictitious thing. plus it just was a bad movie. it was pointless gore and poinless nudity.

1/10
