      Tom Long Santa Cruz Sentinel I wasn't really aware that movies this bad actually made it to our local theaters. But they do, and I have the bruises both mental and physical to prove it. Feb 4, 2019 Full Review Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.Com Rated: 2/5 Sep 19, 2005 Full Review Read all reviews

      harri k Terrible but funny. All over the place as these tend to be. a lot of overacting, bad dubbing, awkward cuts, the usual vhs era martial arts that make little sense. Wide variety of quirky, special characters. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Voi tätä kömpelyyttä. Voi tätä kökköyttä. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/12/23 Full Review Audience Member One of the most outrageously awful movies I have ever seen, in a "totally worth your time" kind of way. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member Giving it half a star is probably being a bit kind to it. Hilariously bad, the sort of film you don't even need to be drunk to enjoy. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review dave j Thursday, August 16, 2012 (1985) 9 Deaths Of The Ninja ACTION According to RT "Meant to be a parody of the martial arts genre" but if that is what it's supposed to be then I must be missing something here because I thought it failed on all levels since the fights were badly staged that could use better sound effects when their aren't any except for the explosions etc... The plot is a dime-a-dozen which centers on some kidnapping of some English speaking tourists or Asian while riding on a bus somehwere along the Phillipine jungle and the terrorists who hijack it for a release of one terrorist hostage who also happens to be Phillipine terrorist who seems to be quite useless once release. A group of 3 (who are suppose to be the best)are sent to save them- one is of course Sho Kosugi (who was also credited for the martial art choreography) another is a mercenary who happens to be a Caucasion and a Cauacasion female whose supposed to be an expert on explosives. Oh, and one last thing some of the terrorists also include model-like Caucasion women. Actor Sho Kosugi's son also has a small part in this as one of the hostages. I probably counted at least 10 cringes on my forehead upon watching this. 1 out of 4 Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Chop socky (and schlocky) trash-fest that can evidently only be shown after 1am on telly in case anyone sensible might see it. Poor old Sho Kosugi got lumbered with some tat in his time but this one must take the biscuit. Mind you, I first saw it after several hours drinking and at the time felt it could rival "Citizen Kane" in the echelons of classic cinema. Theres a lesson here...
