New Kamui “live action” trailer released today! I put live action in quotes because it’s going to take A LOT of CGI to pull-off the “Island of Sugaru” shark hunter stoyline they’ve adapted… Concerned but optimistic. Big digital-heavy ninja property relaunches haven’t exactly been home runs in the past decade. Owl’s Castle and Red Shadow‘s low moments were unnecessary FX sequences. Shinobi-no-mono proved 40 years ago that ninja films are strongest when they are grounded in reality and deliver on the solid martial arts more than the bells and whistles. Hopefully a lesson not totally forgotten.
