Genre Action, Crime, Thriller Imdb Rating 6. Reviews: This is a movie about Ninjas doing Ninja things, being stealthy, practicing bad-ass moves, and killing lots of other Ninjas. There are lots of really cool weapons being used in the movie as well. So if you like ninja movies and action movies, this is definitely a movie you cannot allow to miss out on. But of course, I suppose this is kept in English to reach a wider audience.
. Top notch action from beginning till end. Teaming up with Europol investigator Mika, Raizo steadily butchers his enemies while inching ever closer to the long-awaited bloody reunion with his former master. Humdrum story but goofily entertaining. Sho Kosugi is excellent as the master ninja, and a great choice for throwback fans of much better Ninja films like Revenge of the Ninja last time I saw it I was 8 years old so….
There is a lot of bloodshed in this martial arts fest. And also, again why would a Japanese clan take in non-Japanese children and train as ninjas? Anyway, the cast of the movie is good, and it is refreshing to see new faces to the martial arts scene. Taken from the streets as a child, he was transformed into a trained killer by the Ozunu Clan, a secret society whose very existence is considered a myth. Right from the very beginning this movie is up in fast pace, action-filled and soaking in blood. Raizo teams up with a Europol investigator Mika to go after his former master to get revenge for the killing of his friend. Written by The Massie Twins Reviews: This is by far the best ninja movie I have seen.
Teaming up with Europol investigator Mika, Raizo steadily butchers his enemies while inching ever closer to the long-awaited bloody reunion with his former master. There are a billion plot holes here, Ninjas are un-killable until the movie decides they should be cannon fodder. Each decapitation is enhanced with buckets of blood that will make any Tarantino fan giddy with dark and kind of disturbing joy. Your suspension of disbelief will be pushed into overdrive but in the end, a movie about Ninjas doing Ninja things is always going to be at least decent. But do take notice that there is a lot of blood in this movie! There is just one bad thing to the movie, and that is why would an ancient clan of Japanese ninjas speak English? Unfortunately the Wachowski siblings seem to be getting much worse at special effects.
Some of the scenes look absolutely unbelievable and the Ninja training ground almost looks like a student work for a 3D class. The martial arts choreography and fighting scenes are brilliant, fast and hard punching. Movies Plot : Ninja Assassin follows Raizo, one of the deadliest assassins in the world. The story of the movie is good and keeps going at a good pace, so you never feel bored. Now he waits, preparing to exact his revenge.
It makes no sense, as Japanese people are bound to traditions. Now he waits, preparing to exact his revenge. The dialogue is straight to the point, no clumsy, half-hearted dialogue going on here, which also helps the movie to keep going. But haunted by the merciless execution of his friend by the Clan, Raizo breaks free from them and vanishes. But had they actually done it in Japanese, there would be a much more wholesome feel to the movie.
Taken from the streets as a child, he was transformed into a trained killer by the Ozunu Clan, a secret society whose very existence is considered a myth. It must be noted that the extremely graphic decapitations look great though. Raizo has been trained by the Ozunu clan to be a Ninja assassin since childhood but has turned his back on them. But haunted by the merciless execution of his friend by the Clan, Raizo breaks free from them and vanishes. Rain the hero ninja barely says a word through the movie and when he does he sounds a lot like another immortal swordsman, Christopher Lambert. .
