During their discussion of a sensitive investigation A, the Fourth Raikage, and his subordinates are ambushed by a cloaked intruder. As the Kumogakure leader repels the assault, he is shocked to discover that the culprit is Naruto Uzumaki!

However, the assassination attempt is not the only crime attributed to the young ninja, who vigorously denies the accusations. To avoid a diplomatic conflict, Tsunade forcibly sends him to Kusagakure's Houzuki Castle—a maximum-security penitentiary dedicated to ninja criminals—until the situation is resolved.

Despite his powers being immediately suppressed by Mui, the prison's warden who possesses the ability to seal chakra, Naruto recklessly engages in futile escape attempts. But with the help of two fellow inmates, he realizes that there is more to this legendary detention facility than meets the eye. Uncovering a terrible secret, the trio embarks on a dangerous operation that may be Naruto's only chance to break free and prove his innocence.

Although it is debatable where Naruto: Shippuuden Movie 5 - Blood Prison is set in the timeline of the main series due to confusing story elements, it is likely to fall somewhere after episode 220 during the "Fourth Shinobi World War: Countdown" and "Paradise Life on a Boat" arcs.

The movie was released in theaters on July 30, 2011, earning 840 million yen in box office revenue. The DVD version was made available on April 27, 2012 in Japan. Neon Alley began streaming the film on January 26, 2014 and Viz Media released it on DVD and Blu-ray in North America on February 18, 2014.

While the previous movies were produced with the participation of the television series' screenplay writers, Naruto: Shippuuden Movie 5 - Blood Prison was entrusted to the mystery writer Akira Higashiyama. For this reason, "Shippuuden" was removed from the Japanese original title.

Naruto movies usually arent that great but this movie is very good to the point i would say it should have a canon version like how dbs does but in a better way.

The movie as the name suggests is in a prison, naruto is framed for an attack against the four hokage and thus gets his chakra sealed and gets send to a prison alongside a new character, something unusual is happening in the prison so naruto has to investigate to find whats going on and save the day.

The plot is a solid 7/10
The animation is really good 8/10
The characters even the new ones although ...

Mixed Feelings
This is the eighth Naruto movie, made around the time of the Kage Summit, after Raikage is introduced. The movie’s premise is quite absurd and it’s an easy way to dislike it in just the first few minutes. In fact, it is tormenting with the protagonist for so long, it is better suited for people who DISLIKE the anime and not people who are still fans. Seriously you guys, you must watch this only if you dig the idea of watching Naruto being molested by prison guards, ravaged by dogs, acting like a prison bitch, saved by useless girls, and constantly rolling over on mud ...

*Spoiler warning.*

It wasn't terrible but it wasn't good. That is what I would say to describe this movie in one sentence. To start off, the plot didn't really make any sense to me. Why would Naruto even TRY to kill the Raikage (Ik it wasn't him but yk what I mean.) Second, why would you send him to a prison in a different place? I mean most criminals either get killed (especially for something like that) or sent to a prison in there respective village. Yes, I know it was "high security super scary prison" but come on that's stupid! Besides the plot, it wasn't ...
