This movie had lots of blood, lots of fighting, not exactly the most unique story, but was OK IMO.

The variety of weaponry was good since ninjas historically have been proficient with many different types. Other than that, it had some recurring Japanese themes such as the female love interest dying and enacting vengeance. It was a film I was willing to watch, but I do not intend to see it again.

If i'm correct, 2 of the main characters who were ninjas were actually Korean, and some of the other ninjas from young age seemed to be from different ethnicities. But the 2 ninjas were given japanese names i think.

Ninjas are Japanese, though. Also, they are all trained by a Japanese master ninja.

The actors who portrayed the film's protagonist Raizo and his teenage version were South Korean actors Rain and Lee Joon. The young antagonist Takeshi was played by Korean American actor Rick Yune, while the older villain was played by Sho Kosugi, a Japanese martial artist/actor famous for playing ninja characters in the 1980s.
