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.

This is an short overall comment on the movie
20 March 2000 | by lkimuraSee all my reviews

This movie is good, except it is short. I think it was approximately 30-40 minutes long, even though on the box it says 50 min. I think it is a pre-quel to the good movie "Samurai Showdown" At least it has 2 of the characters, Yagu Jubei and Amakusa Shiro (excuse my spelling of these names). This has nothing to do with Jubei Kimagama (again please excuse the spelling) of Ninja Scroll.

If you like blood, guts, violence, then see this movie, very little drama, a lot of action.
