Solidly paced, gory and action packed; although not perfect the movie's elements remind me of what exploitation films deliver with repulsive imagery in entertaining ways.

Incredible for what it is, Ninja Scroll ranks among the best anime films ever made. Stylish, brutal and fast paced, it forgets the number one goal of an action movie, the fighting.

Ninja Scroll has some very interesting scenes, the world building is great, the score is pretty good and the action is very well executed and mostly fantastic, but the characters aren't that well developed, the film is rushed at times, it is always a style over substance and the film is too violent and incredibly sexist which was really annoying leading to a solid, but disappointing film.

This was much better when I was 12. Watching it now and it looks atrocious.

Classic action packed anime set in feudal Japan.

Its unbridled surreal/supernatural elements play off in a setting that takes itself all too seriously. This makes for an intriguing, well animated piece that is worth looking at.

Full of graphic violence, gratuitous sex and nudity, and badass animation, Ninja Scroll is Anime escapism at its finest.

A beautifully drawn Japanese animated (amime) film that well written and action packed set in fantasy feudal Japan. A masterpiece among Japanese anime films.

Exceptional anime with great action & story. Is an anime all other samurai anime are compared to. Worth owning.

Depraved, violent, awesome. Rewatching it made me realize how unique and well-developed the characters were, esp. the villains. Quite touching in a cheesy way too.

Violent, yes! Entertaining, yes! Completely awesome, YES!

A superb highlight of anime cinema, though not quite matching up to the milestone works of Otomo or Miyazaki.

Awesome action. One of the first Anime I ever saw and pretty much just endless bloodshed.
