      Audience Member John has two jobs: he's a maverick NYPD cop. And, well, he's also a ninja. A super ninja. Alexander Rei Lo is the guy for this role because a look across his IMDB resume tells us that he sure was in a lot of ninja movies. Don't believe me? How about this list: Ninja Kids, Ninja vs. Shaolin, Mafia vs. Ninja, USA Ninja, Ninja vs. Shaolin Guard, Ninja Death (three films), Wu Tang vs. Ninja, the nine-hour long Ninja: The Final Duel, Ninja Condors, Ninja: The Battalion and two Ninja in the Deadly Duel films. Anyways, it's the 80s, drugs are everywhere and John the ninja cop gets framed. Using his shadow skills, he escapes and uncover a plot to steal his girlfriend's father's life work, so he travels to China to face the 5 Element Ninjas. Honestly at this point, I'd get you $20 for the blu ray. But then there's an impossible long sex scene* set to the smoothest sax jazz and I want the UHD, I want to Kickstart a web series, I want to make two sequels to this with the original cast. I want Eugene Thomas to make a whole series of Spencer side stories. I want Stallone to watch the way they ripped off the first Rambo movie and say, "Heyyyyyyy alight!" This movie taught me that if I want to beat the five elements of ninja — silly me thought there were only four elements and metal was a man-made thing — and a tiger ninja, I just need to "draw strengths from your future and past and see beyond the illusion of this world." Then again, one of these ninjas sets his hands on fire before he punches you. *The sex scene is so long that nearly two complete songs play during it. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member The first 2 minutes is gold. The rest offers a bevy of laughs, including some great "racial tension." A must see for fans of shit. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/20/23 Full Review Audience Member Everybody gets karate chopped. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Wow. I'll always remember what a cool night that was... Anti-White kung-fu movies rule!!! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/19/23 Full Review Audience Member Alexander Lou and Eugene Thomas star in this oldschool chop-socky gong-fu martial arts disasterpiece. It's really one of the funniest and most inventive movies you'll EVER see. And the atrocious dubbing just adds to the fun. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/11/23 Full Review Audience Member This is great as a B-film. Bad voice acting, the worst sex scene ever and stiffy characters. You'll have a lot of fun with this one.
