An action romance fantasy film when two clans of highly skilled ninjas with special powers, Japanese X-men, were coerced to kill off each other by the ruling Shogun. Good concept but with substandard special effects. (See the list of characters and their special powers in "Summary.")

From wiki:

The list of five top ninja of Iga and Kouga clans:


Joe Odagiri as Kouga Gennosuke - the Kouga leader with the power to see, react, and move at very high speeds.
Takeshi Masu as Muroga Hyouma - has abilities similar to a 6th sense (seeing enemies kilometers away).
Mitsuki Koga as Chikuma Koshirou - no supernatural powers, best weapons user.
Tomoka Kurotani as Kagero - poison specialist. Poison flows within her veins and she is able to breathe poison at enemies or poisoning them with a kiss.
Houka Kinoshita as Kisaragi Saemon - he is able to assume the physical appearance of others and imitate their voice.


Yukie Nakama as Oboro - the Iga leader who has the "eyes of destruction", completely incapacitating an opponent with one glance.
Kippei Shiina as Yakushiji Tenzen - he is the host to parasitic worms which prevent him from aging and heal any wounds he sustained, allowing him to quickly recover from nearly any injury.
Tak Sakaguchi as Yashamaru - he manipulates thin wires, using them like whips. The wires are also sharp enough to cut through various objects.
Shun Ito as Mino Nenki - beastman that has a keen sense of smell
Erika Sawajiri as Hotarubi - she uses some sort of dust that manipulates butterflies and moths.
