If for nothing else, watch this for the special effects.
An action adventure movie with some decent special effects trickery, revolving around a tale of two rivaling clans in old Japan. There are also a boy and a girl from each clan who meet when the girl is kidnapped and they take a liking to each other. A kid's movie? I guess you could call it that, it sure is harmless enough, but this grown-up liked it, too. Except for that crude ending in which... well, you might want to check that yourself.
The special effects are the most fun here; some of it are really pretty good, and some of it is good enough in a (very) cheesy way (the beasts in the sky, for instance). The soundtrack sounds very 'western' (American, European, Hollywoodian?), which seemed fairly unbefitting to me.
Doable for sure, but that ending... 6 out of 10, then.
