Bandits vs. Samurai Squadron (雲霧仁左衛門 Kumokiri Nizaemon) is a 1978 Japanese film directed by Hideo Gosha.



Jason Buchanan at AllMovie says that director Hideo Gosha makes a "triumphant return to the samurai genre with this plot twisting, nerve shredding tale",[1] but critic Alexander Jacoby calls it "a bland chanbara".[2]
