Editorial Reviews

The filmmakers behind Tokyo Gore Police and The Machine Girl join studio Sushi Typhoon to add this side-splitting horror-comedy to their line of entertaining cult cinema.
In ancient Japan, the fiercest ninjas of the Iga clan face their toughest enemies - and they aren't from this planet! A fiery mass crashes in the forest and soon horrifyingly savage creatures reduce the warriors to tasty snacks. But these jerks from outer space have bitten off more than they can chew. The ninjas' swords and throwing stars may fail against the unearthly goons, but their skills don't stop at sharp stuff. If you're into Army of Darkness, you'll be taking bets over who'll win this over-the-top battle for survival!

5.0 out of 5 stars TIL that aliens are actually ugly dolphins April 21, 2011
By Lauren
Format:DVD
Greetings People!

I wish to inform you that Alien vs. Ninja is truly one of the most entertaining movies of the decade. It has horror, comedy, drama, action, and even a tad bit of something resembling romance (maybe).

Some people might think -Aliens and Ninjas? That could never happen! No way is this going to work!- as I did before watching this work of art. But, I assure you, it works out quite well--nearly as well as I imagine ZvN, Zombies vs. Ninjas, would turn out. Oh wait...the movie includes zombies vs ninjas! Thus it's proved to be just as exciting!

The aliens in AvN are certainly original, and definitely-not-at-all-inspired-by-'Alien'-the-hit-film. No resemblance what-so-ever. In fact, these aliens tunnel underground, bounce, curl up into spike balls, know how to swordfight and fire a gun, and even jump 50 meters...frequently without being seen! And I haven't even spoiled the ending fight for you.

The ninjas, for the most part, are badass. Except for the one comic-relief character who somehow manages to last for about 3/4 of the movie...Really that's my only complaint. The real ninjas twirl, wear tight leather pants, use some cool gadgets, and are generally all around Ninja. More need not be said.

Quite a spectacular morsel of entertainment, my only other complaint is that the fun only lasts for 81 minutes.

3.0 out of 5 stars Loads of Fun March 31, 2011
Format:DVD
This movie is actually a tough one to rate. Is it a good movie? Probably not. But it doesn't pretend to be so you pretty much have to take it on its own terms.

Here's the scoop. A group of Ninja warriors on their way back from a recon mission see a fireball plummet to the earth. Before long they are beset by a quick, strong, nasty group of aliens hell bent on killing everything in sight. Said Ninjas need to boogie their way back to town in one piece to warn everyone.

This flick is a real hoot. It borrows from both Alien and Predator so it doesn't take a genius to see where they're going with this. It contains a fair number of anachronisms that play to a younger crowd. The body armor, hair styles and ink are all punked out. My guess is this is set in the late 19th century but one of the Ninja is an inventor who has miraculously engineered a fully automatic weapon. The group themselves look as though they came out of an Anime feature. Two of the guys are impossibly good looking. One is a gorgeous gal and there is a buffoon along for comic relief. The monsters are of the rubber suit variety and not terribly well designed or constructed. These monsters are really fast until they come face to face with our heroes where they inexplicably slow down a bit. Some of the fight scenes are impossible which makes them all the more fun to watch. Some are just so-so.

I couldn't help but think that this would make a really cool straight up movie. The 'Predator' premise can be used during any historical period, and the mystique surrounding Ninja warriors makes for a good match-up. The producers and director play this for the yuks which is cool, and, at eighty minutes, it doesn't ware out its welcome.

If your looking for mindlessly fun entertainment you'd be hard pressed to find a better outing than this.

4.0 out of 5 stars AVN April 8, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The aliens do have a dolphin feel to them but there still cool looking and have some fun things about them, like rolling into a ball at the ninja's and they got these little guys who come out of the holes in their head and can go into the ninja's and control them, and their long tales can go back into their body and come back out at will. AVN is funny and gory. Some yucky deaths and some cool fight scenes. I enjoyed the fight between the alien and the girl, how she's flipping all over the place and riding the tail. The film is slow at the start but once the aliens appear, it's all fun til the end.

Format:DVD
Early on this movie separates itself from its subgenre kin by demonstrating more innovative combat choreography than the earlier, Tokyo Gore Police era flicks (e.g., Meatball Machine, Machine Girl). Some of these adroit maneuvers are cleverly executed, although clearly lacking the precision of modern Hong Kong cinema. Of course, the combat has plenty of corny to go around as well.

Much as in Predator a team of highly trained personnel encounter a youngster scared mute in the forest and then encounter an alien. The first battle is like a cross between Predator, Tremors and Aliens--you'd probably have to see it to understand this reference combo. The gore is ample, funny, well-delivered, and up to snuff with the higher budgeted Tokyo Shock flicks. One dude explodes, legs are stripped to the bone, someone gets torn in half, and there's even an "inner ass" punch.

The aliens are seem very familiar, modeled largely after the Alien alien, but with what appears to be a neck vagina from which Species-esque tendrils emerge. There are holes on its head which house some alien larvae which Wrath of Khan their way into their victem's head. These larvae then control you from within your brain (as in Meatball Machine).

For some reason the combat becomes cornier and less deft when the ninjas face off against the aliens more directly. The exploitative nature gets kicked up a notch as well in the form of suggestive choreography and an apparent sexual assault attempt by one of the aliens. On the cornier side, the alien throws in some Street Fighter II Blanka rolling assaults and later sprouts Jeepers Creepers wings out of nowhere. The final fight is the most silly but least skillful.

I was a little disappointed in this movie. It is a cross between comedy and horror. It did have some stupid parts in it but it was funny too.
