      Trina H This movie is utterly ridiculous. Poorly written script. Not worth watching. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 03/17/24 Full Review Audience Member OOOO, Hirohito onko housusi kittana. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Pretty good. Good action and not a bad storyline. Not bad fighting and some good jokes in there too. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/16/23 Full Review Audience Member Less the 80's ninjasploitation throwback I was hoping for (a'la Ninja Assassin), more your bog standard low budget action movie... with ninjas! There are a couple of highlights worth keeping an eye out for including Anthony Wong (whom Matrix fans will recognise as Ghost from Reloaded, Revolutions and Enter the Matrix), Crystal Kwon's kill crazy kunoichi and the odd cool ninja moment (don't expect the OTT mysticism we all know and love though, the film takes itself far too seriously to allow magical hand gestures and disappearing into thin air) but the plot is generic rubbish, the characters are bland (for the most part), and the action is largely spoilt by spastic editing and shaky cam. As for Casper Van Dien, well this certainly isn't going to propel him out of Hollywood purgatory but one thing's for damn sure - it's a hell of a lot better than Starship Troopers 3! Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/08/23 Full Review Audience Member Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha. The filming is so bad that you are unable to see fights, lots of pretty girls in the movie though. The entire cast is killed, except the hero and the girl, and frankly the hero should have been the first to die, with all the fatal injuries he gets in this movie. Since Sho Kosugi was active, no good ninja movie has been made, and they weren't that good either. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/14/23 Full Review Audience Member possibly the worst thing i've watched in a while, my mam walked out after the testicle cutting off bit...maybe i should have too?
