WHOA, they are going full out to replicate Shishio's look. It's gonna be interesting to see how Fujiwara performs under all that makeup and bandages.

I was skeptical that they casted Fujiwara as Shihio, but at least they didn't make him recognizable. If he does good, then I know who they should cast as Zabuza if they make a "Naruto" movie.

Like casting Ah-nold as Dr. Freeze then covering him up.

The first movie did an amazing job translating the character designs into real life in a very believable way, and it looks like the sequels are trying to do the same thing. Shishio's definitely going to be one of the hardest looks to duplicate, but I've got high hopes.

Well the LOOK is down pat with what they showed. However, the thing about heavy makeup like that is that the actor is going to have a handicap when performing. Furthermore, I wonder how well Fujiwara is going to be able to fight in that (if he doesn't have a stunt actor do it for him)

Why is the first movie still not availiable here?

It came out in Region B ten months ago. My sister lives in Australia and owns it, because thats when Madman released it there.

Yet we have ZERO release here? Can someone please find out what is going on with this? I watched the film and loved it, and would love to own it.
