A sexy squad of female ninja assassins is hired by a ruthless magistrate to exterminate his former lovers, who threaten to ruin his reputation. Battles erupt with a hilarious mix of martial arts and magic--all in the line of duty.
Female ninjas nudity and sword-wielding action directed by Takayuki Miyagawa is bawdy and thrilling. The female ninjas are sent undercover (sometimes under bed covers) to investigate the disappearance of a gold chest.
A gang of evil ninjas has stolen the sacred sword of the Lady Mayu and are demanding that her family exchange her for the family treasure. The world's greatest swordsman, Shuranosuke Sakaki, is called in to get the sword back.
What critical standards do you apply to a movie where one of the villians is despatched by a female ninja machine gunning a stream of ping pong balls from her vagina and another has his testicles inflated to the size of basketballs and exploded? The only sensible reaction is to treat it as slapstick comedy and judge accordingly.
By that standard, this movie is a hoot. The plot is some ridiculous palaver about saving the Shogun's honor, but the action moves along at a brisk clip with a steady stream of cheesy special effects, comically over the top violence, gratuitous nudity and lashings of sex, both straight and kinky. The cast chew the scenery (and occasionally each other).
Don't take it seriously. Just laugh along.
