Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
This surprise hit for Cannon Films is a typical example of the better films from their early '80s heyday; it's junky and virtually devoid of substance but delivers the goods with an often jaw-dropping amount of energy. James Silke's story line is a train-wreck of implausibilities and paper-thin characterizations, but it delivers some novel, comic-book bit of action virtually every five minutes. It's the perfect setup for a fun throwaway, and Revenge of the Ninja works on this level for two reasons. The first is Sam Firstenberg's direction, which takes a breezy, no-frills approach that bypasses all the story's silliness to push its high action quotient front and center. It might not ever get you involved in the story but it also keeps things from getting dull. The second (and most important) reason is the presence of the underrated Sho Kosugi: he delivers the high-kicking skills and the raw charisma needed for his hero's role, making up for what he lacks in polish with sheer determination. Indeed, his shining moment is an amazing scene where he chases down a speeding van by leaping over several car-roofs and clawing his way inside of it while it tears down the road. In the end, Revenge of the Ninja is far too raw and goofball in tone to ever stack up to a classic like Enter the Dragon, but it's perfect Saturday afternoon fun for martial arts fans with a sense of humor about the genre.

    The Ninja Is Back!

    This movie rocks! In the 80's the Ninja movies were sometimes good or really bad! When Sho Kosugi (a real-life Ninja) came out he gave the ''Ninja'' a good posture to the uniform with good acting qualities with a Ninja touch. His real-life son Kane (a Karate black belt) at the time this movie came out features him in it as his son in the movie as well. This movie suited more for adults than kids brings forward the forces of good and evil in a martial arts way! Unfortunately the production and graphics could have been better but since it was more than likely a low budget film it lacks the quality of good graphics. Other good martial arts films with Sho Kosugi are: Ninja III: The Domination; Enter the Ninja; Pray for Death. I recently viewed another very good martial arts movie with the Ninja's presence in it called: ''The Hunted'' (1998) with Christopher Lambert. A must see! If your into Ninja movies you will certianly be entertained with: Revenge of the Ninja (1983).
