“u0026quot;Legend of Goemonu0026quot; reminded me of of u0026quot;Casshernu0026quot;, that movie was also directed by Kazuaki Kiriya. The movie is a feast for the eyes from the beginning till the end, and superior to Casshern in acting, music, story and character-development.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eAlso, the budget of this movie was a mere 9 million dollars!!! u0026quot;Ninja Assassinu0026quot;, from last year, made in Hollywood, was produced on a 40 million dollar budget and is a lesser movie in all areas compared to u0026quot;Legend of Goemonu0026quot;.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI totally agree with all the positive reviews of this movie and want to only mention that if youu0026#39;re looking for a live-action anime kind of movie and you like moveis with lots of ninja-action you MUST watch legend of Goemon as soon as possible!”
