easily as confusing as any spy film i've ever seen but i like it for shinoda's eye. his films have almost film noir style. and also...NINJAS!
A form of Art? Probley or just a low budget filmed Samurai flick. To many it has a very strange plot to fan's of these kinds of films THIS ROCK'S!
Great acting, Nicely done fight scene's easy. One negitive is that it tacks more then one watch and not many will get the ending.
Samurai Soy was made during the cold war and reflects both the paranoia and uncertainty of the time. It's a tale of spies being caught between sides. Having the appearance of being on one side, whilst fighting for the other, causes a lot of conflict and grief for the warriors. Perhaps the audience was supposed to be as confused as the spies, but it doesn't help so much when telling a story. Unlike the majority of samurai films, we get to see some awesome stealthy ninja action and throwing star carnage. The immense leaps and jumping made for a wealth of excitement. There were also some fantastic long shots which just aren't used for action sequences these days.
very inventive. the story was creative and deep. the only flaw in fact is that the story was too deep, so deep that parts were very confusing. alot of characters whose story intermingle in complex ways. the fighting was great and i loved the concept of samurai spies, sort of like early incarnations of ninjas.
