In war-torn Japan, the Tokugawa Shogun, desperate to restore peace to his people, orders the assassination of the hostile warlords. Gessai under the order of Tenkai Nankubo, raises 10 young orphans in the mountain to become the most effective killer/assassins. When they are teenagers, Gessai assigns them to a mortal test, and then the five survivors travel with him with the mission of killing three evil warlords of clans and keeping their nation united without plunging again into a bloody war.
Absolutely one of the best movie i've ever seen. Absolutely epic. More than 2 hour long. A worthwile watch (which coincide with the size). Everything about is epic from the start of the movies and until the end of the movie. From the start of the test given by Gessai, i was shocked and always shout "Nooo!!" (in my heart of course) and was moved by their determination. A beautiful girl swinging around a katana slicing anyone on her path, you cannot get it anywhere.
For the 2nd, it was a bit less epic but it was still good because of what happen before the climax. a 8/10 for me. XD
