This is a colorful neo-noir with dark and twisted characters, nonstop action, and an interesting plot. The visuals create fascinating character design and some memorable visual tableaus. I don't think the film connects emotionally, but, as a pure adrenaline rush of action, it works very well.

Action: 3/3 + Comedy: 1/2 + Good vs Evil: 1/1 + Love/Sex: 1/1 + Special Effects: 1/1 + Plot: 1/1 + Music: 1/1 = 9/10 or 90%. Ninja Scroll is a dominant piece of anime action on an epic scale. There isn't much not to like here, though the main complaints will be length and the somewhat typical static nature of rogue badass fighters and the inevitable forbidden love side-plot, but the action and execution of this piece is far superior to other cult phenoms such as Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. So hold on, give in, and witness one of the finest escapist pieces anime has to offer to the action fan!

This is a perfect example of an anime movie to just sit back and be entertained by. The story, although adequate, is not its strong point. However, amazing action sequences will keep anyone who likes to see evil villans and demons chopped up like sushi entertained. A warning - this film contains an enormous amount of blood and violence, including several sextually explicit scenes (including a rape scene). Not for the young or anyone turned off by that type of thing.

This anime movie has got it all! Great fight scenes, heroes, and villians. I can watch this over and over and never get bored. I strongly recommend watching in Japanese and not dealing with subtitles

A very dark movie, but very cool over all.

Ninja Scroll is memorable in that, for its intended audience, it's got a lot of very well animated violent sequences, some rough but sharply defined characterizations, and a journey/story that is not too hard to figure out. It's got that samurai edge of 17th century lore from Japan, but it's also kinetic in its style, and abrasive at times in what it reaches to accomplish. It's also fun, most of the time, which is hard to be said for some very finely animated but incoherent samurai anime flicks or shows. After a village is destroyed by some weird plague, a samurai goes on a quest to find a dangerous foe who's seeking to overthrow the government. In the meantime, however, this quest involves facing off against deranged, fantastical demons set up by this head-foe. Of course a female counter...
