page not found... think it's because you put .com after Shinobi!

They did a live action film.... Shinobi? Shinobi as in the many incarnations on Sega 8 and 16 bit consoles?

The only thing I care about is that it includes the original language track. And not as some crappy stereo track like FUNimation did with DBZ on Blu-ray.

Shinobi is based on a book called the Kouga Ninja Scrolls by Futara Yamada in 1958. It was turned into a manga, and an anime called Basillisk, thus probably why Funimation is making it. The original title is Shinobi:Heart Under the Blade. I'm not sure how the movie will turn out, but it is a great story and was pretty popular in Japan.

Man you think HDD would provide this kind of information!

Oh I have this movie. It's ok. Just let everyone know, this is more of a romance movie than an action flick. It's like Romeo and Juliet set in medieval Japan.

I don't know what sort of romance movies YOU watch, I found the love story element extremely thin,(thankfully), which takes a backseat to numerous excellent action scenes. I like the fact the main male character's ninja power is only hinted at, up until the final battle.
