Before we get into the meat of this review I should probably explain a couple of things first.
 The version I have of 8 Masters is dubbed and appears to be missing about 5 minutes of footage which you think really wouldn't matter that much but anyone who owns these sort of films will tell you a new or even poor translation and a few missing reel moments can make all the difference between a coherent masterpiece or a jumbled piece of garbage.
