The boy who is the Shogun's Shadow, or heir, is in considerable danger. Personal bodyguard Igo Gyobu (Ken Igata), accompanied by seven samurai, is sent to bring him to safety. They cross deserts, swim through roaring rivers, and climb snow covered mountains, all with hostile armies in pursuit. This grand-scale action follows the outlines of a classic tall-tale. All sense of disbelief is happily suspended in order to provide maximum excitement. Director Yasuo Furuhata even stages one battle to the accompaniment of throbbing rock music. Martial arts legend Sonny Chiba choreographed the exuberant fight scenes.
