I was pretty excited to see that amazon.com is listing a preorder for FIVE ELEMENTAL NINJAS. This is my all-time favorite Shaw Brothers movie, even though the version I saw in the theaters when I was a young boy was heavily edited and went under the title SUPER NINJAS. I already have a bootleg DVD, a Region 3 Celestial Pictures release, and the "Enhanced" Tokyo Shock version.... but somehow I'm still excited to get my hands on the Blu-Ray version. I guess I just want a version of this film in the highest quality I can get it in.
If you've never seen this classic, you need to do yourself a favor and pick up a copy of this movie in any format.
When a quintet of nasty ninjas hell-bent on world domination nearly massacres an entire clan, its lone survivor must take the path of revenge. He meets up with an old master well versed in the ways of the ninja. Now armed with secret knowledge and newfound friends, he must battle the awesome power of the Five Element Ninjas, who harness the powers of gold, wood, fire, water, and earth. Available on Blu-ray for the first time in the popular Shaw Brothers Classic line from Media Blasters
