  1. 88
    Features more than enough thrilling wirework, slow and agonizing deaths, and blood-spattered faces to please even the most discriminating fans of the genre.
  2. 75
    As a moody drama, it falls short, but as lightweight escapism, it sets off sporadic but irresistible explosions of pure cinematic delight.
  3. A movie of such cheerful craziness and nonstop ferocity that you can't take it seriously for a second.
  4. It is probably Kitamura's best film.
  5. Unfortunately, the film itself -- though it contains some superbly staged and highly lavish action sequences -- lacks the tautness of its heroine.
  6. 50
    An uneven effort overall that when it is working has a strange, engaging energy that is often overturned by an uncertain staidness.
  7. If you're considering the scenario via Japan's ubiquitous pedo-porn tendencies, you're too educated for this exhaustive, manga-based bloodbath, which trails after these angsty teenyboppers on a scorched-fake-earth path through hundreds of growling baddies of every genre size and type.

    Sort of a messy ninja movie, not really all that good. It's fun enough to watch, but don't go looking for decent story or plot or Sort of a messy ninja movie, not really all that good. It's fun enough to watch, but don't go looking for decent story or plot or characters... or much of anything. It tries to go too far with not enough gas. Collapse
