Both films feature the eponymous Sakura organisation, both feature ninjas and the voice of Gregory Snegoff can be heard in both films: as Master Sugiyama in Sakura Killers and Sanada, the Sakura father in White Phantom.

Worst film ever.
30 July 2002 | by Tag_RedSee all my reviews

Don't let the rating from other people fool you: this film is definitely not 4.5 out of 10. it's more like 1. The acting in this film is terrible, and the plot only has around 30 lines of actual dialogue in it. The film is based around a nuclear weapon, yet this seems to become less and less a part of the film as it progresses until at the end it's completely forgotten about and you're left wondering who exactly holds the power to wipe out an entire city. The fighting (if you can call it that) looks like it's been coreographed by an eleven year old, it is slow, wooden and predictable. The only thing this film has going for it is that if you watch it with a bunch of friends, at least you can laugh at the film makers and wonder just what exactly they were thinking when they made this movie. A character called "Ears"? Honestly... It's truly truly awful, and if there's one film to avoid it's White Phantom.
