Band of Assassions [Shinobi no Mono]
Band of Assassions [Shinobi no Mono]

The Film that Made Ninjas Legendary

director: Kazuo Ikehiro
starring: Raizo Ichikawa Yunosuke Ito Tomisaburo Wakayama Shiho Fujimura

This film (and the rest of the series) is generally considered to be the best, the most accurate representation of the Ninja's role in feudal Japan. Of course, there are many other ninja films, some are better made with bigger budgets. But few have managed to capture the essence of this secretive band of trained assassins. Based on the fictional bestseller by Tomoyoshi Murayama, this is the story of Goemon Ishikawa, a 16th Century ninja, a Robin Hood bandit, who opposes Lord Nobunaga Oda during his short but deadly reign.

A 1962 Japanese film; original screen format (2.35:1), uncut (105 min.) version in DVD encoded for REGION ONE NTSC, playable on any American DVD machine; in Japanese language with optional English subtitles. Extras include trailers and and program notes.

Violence/Adult Material:
For Mature Audiences Only
