Someone passed along a really nice copy of Five Element Ninjas so I could take a gander at it. It's a 1982 Shaw Brothers movie with a typical plot. A martial artist must get his revenge on the ninjas that killed his master. It's got oodles of fighting, plenty of fun slaughter and gallons of bright red blood.
That's the band of good guys who have to go up against the element ninjas. The ninjas are all in colorful costumes, one group in gold, one in red, another in earth tones. There's plenty of good sets and costumes. The Shaw Brothers might not have had big budgets but they built good sets which they used over and over. Something to recommend for the martial arts fan. The DVD comes with a nice commentary by Bey Logan.
