Movie Info

This movie tells the story of two opposing Ninja Clans that are trying to jockey for position by being the clan that successfully kills off a samurai named Nobunaga. Nobunaga has been making war on several clans so that he will be in the position to challenge the power of the Shogunate. Now neither of the ninja clans have any love or loyalty for the Shogunate, but neither wants the other clan to gain the prestige of killing Nobunaga. So both clans send their best assassins, who manage to fail miserably. It is here that we are introduced to Goemon who is an up and coming ninja for one of the clans. Goemon also has an eye for the ladies and ends up having an affair with the Master's wife, who is killed when Goemon tries to flee after they are caught. Rather than just kill Goemon the Master sends him on the suicidal mission of trying to kill Nobunaga, all while forcing him to stain his honor by stealing money for the clan. In the end it is revealed that Goemon isn't the terrible criminal that even he thought he was, and after seeing that everyone gets what is coming to them he leaves the life of a ninja behind.

Audience Reviews for Shinobi no Mono (Ninja, a Band of Assassins) (Those That Are Unseen)

The story wasn't too good, and I got bored or annoyed during the movie. But, the good thing about this movie is the ninja action, but you don't get to see a lot of it until past halfway through the movie. I wouldn't recommend this to watch unless you are a die-hard fan of old ninja movies.
