    The Ninja movement returns

    I remember growing up with Ninja movies. At one point it seemed like Hollywood was producing one a week. Then the genre died. The best were movies starring Sho Kosugi, who as it happens, is in the movie, as the old clan leader. I guess this means we've come full circle. Great movie, if just to escape for a little while. Action at it's most bloody! Have fun watching.

    more from this reviewer

    If you can get past the first ten minutes, it's not that bad...

    I saw this movie when it came out, and nearly walked out during the opening sequence because the dialogue and acting was that bad. Because my sister convinced me to stay, I suffered, thinking I was going to see a horrible film.

    While I have to admit the film is clearly not the best work for the actors involved (Rain, for example has done better work in his native South Korea - check out "I'm a cyborg, but that's Okay" or "A Love to Kill"), the movie was about what you would expect from this particular genre. The special effects are a little cheesy, but I have since read that the producers involved wanted an Anime feel, so it makes sense in retrospect.

    I wouldn't own this movie, but I would recommend it as a rental.

    I'm going to be honest here... this is not Rain's best work, and the diague killed it for me.

    While I have to say the movie wasn't as bad as I thought it would be, I still have to admit that the story was uneven at best, the dialogue was awful, and there are scenes, particularly in the first ten minutes, that nearly made me want to walk right out of the theatre. If you can get past the opening sequence, the martial arts scenes make up for some of this. I would recommend this movie as a rental at best, but I would not say that this is a must own film.

    Rain, Naomi Harris, and the Wachowski brothers have all done better films than this one. (If you want to see a decent film that Rain has been in, you might want to track down the TV series "Full House" or the South Korean film "I'm a Cyborg, but That's Okay".)
