Mask Ninja Nishida
Kamen ninja Nishidā
An unemployed young man accidentally drops into an ancient conflict between good and evil. When a magical fruit is supposed to be able to cure all diseases and when a malicious virus threatens the earth, his mission is clear: to save humanity from extinction. Before he knows it, he transforms into the brave Kamen Ninja Nishida and is plunged into a crazy adventure that takes him across time to the Japanese Middle Ages. Samurai versus ninja, wild battles, aerial acrobatics and clanking steel. The final battle for the future of the world begins.
With "Mask Ninja Nishida" director Masakazu Yamaguchi created a colorful action fantasy comedy in the tradition of Kamen Rider and similar superhero TV series. With affectionate attention to detail, large parts of the costumes were made by hand from scrap and recycled materials. The enthusiasm of the film team quickly lets you forget the limited financial resources of this independent production. With "Mask Ninja Nishida", Yamaguchi finally succeeds in a wild genre spectacle that leaves fans with a big smile. Last but not least, the film wants to set a monument to the community of Nishinari, where all of the shooting took place.
